Synopsis of book»

For Will Benson, life cannot get much worse. Cuckolded, overweight and in career meltdown he is at his lowest ebb. Attempting to concentrate on his column in the shambolic trade rag, Theatre World, through a fog of lunchtime drinking, he recalls wistfully his halcyon days as a cub reporter when life was all so different. Bacchanalian romps in the countryside, illicit trysts, shared secrets; the world was his for the taking.

But when the past comes knocking at Will's door, the reality is suddenly far removed from his memories. His old friend Nicholas is dying, and Henry - Will's youthful hero - has stolen a valuable Vermeer painting and is on the run. Impelled to track Henry down, Will reluctantly takes up the trail. But Henry has always been a slippery customer and along the way Will must endure an Oxford Gaudy, a bizarre heavy metal gig and the worst dentist in the world before the full extent of Henry's Machiavellian plans are revealed ...
