On a chilly February day two old friends meet in the throng outside a crematorium to pay their last respects to Molly Lane. Both Clive Linley and Vernon Halliday had been Molly's lovers in the days before they reached their current eminence, Clive as Britain's most successful modern composer, Vernon as editor of the quality broadsheet, The Judge.Gorgeous, feisty Molly had had other lovers too, notably Julian Garmony, Foreign Secretary, a notorious right-winger tipped to be the next prime minister.
In the days that follow Molly's funeral Clive and Vernon will make a pact that will have consequences neither has foreseen. Each will make a disastrous moral decision, their friendship will be tested to its limits and Julian Garmony will be fighting for his political life.

“Don't waste your time”
If there was the option of a no star rating, this book would be a deserving recipient. Ludicrous ending. A much overrated book and quite how it was shortlisted I have no idea!
Utterly amazing. You kind of think it may happen but are lost for words when it does. The book is thoughtful, poignent and never more relative than it is today but also a timeless classic
