From the cover: “The setting of The Dragon’s Head is England in the decade after the First World War. Amid this topsy-turvy world of profiteering, bereavement, mass unemployment and social and political upheaval leading up to the General Strike of 1926 the author unfolds the romantic story of an aristocratic young girl’s divided loyalties. What is the truth about Prince Riabovitch, the White Russian émigré who professes admiration for the Revolution which has dispossessed him and why is he interested in a secret British Government research establishment? How does Russton, the brisk young colonial ex-Serviceman with the means to support his expensive hobbies — racehorses, fast cars — come to work as a hired waiter? And to which of them does Felicity’s heart really belong, if not to her own adored father, the Earl of Rodborough, who seems to depend on her more and more, now that his son and heir is dead and his estate has been sold?”
