Publisher's Summary

1963. England is about to explode. An ageing hack defects to Russia. A cabinet minister resigns. A young woman takes an overdose. A Harley Street physician blows out his brains. Commander Troy investigates. But what with the sex and the drugs, he finds that he's up to his neck in the mess, personally and professionally. The damn thing might blow up in his face, and the English can be so unforgiving of a good scandal.

BORING

This production was so dry and witless that I gave up after about two hours. The plot was hard to follow and the characters were hard to care about.

Total Dud

I agree with shadowdoc about the characters exciting no empathy. I couldn't care less about them. I did stick with it a bit longer than he, and found the very explicit sex scenes not only quite irritating, to the point of being disgusting, but gratuitous. I did want to find out where the early thread was going but totally lost interest after the author seemed to. I definitely cannot reccommend it and am 'dumping' it half way.
