From the cover: “One morning Major William Hazlegrave greets Derek Flaye in the street by the wrong name, ‘Anderson! Anderson Minor!’ There begins an adventure involving treachery, espionage and double-dealing of extraordinary complexity; it involves a bitter struggle between British and Soviet intelligence agencies in the early days of detente, involves too a battle for survival, witnessed by Flaye, between Hazlegrave and one of his old schoolboys. Derek Flaye is irreverent and sometimes foolhardy, his home life is a shambles, his girlfriend, Susie, an earthy foil, but his pursuit of the Major’s ex-pupils is as tense as it is tortuous. I. I. Magdalen, a new and very exciting master of the espionage novel, with his almost tangibly real characters and situations, sees the genre as a fascinating key to the ways of the post-war world.”
