He was out of her league. She was out of her depth. When Miranda, the Miss Lonely Hearts of Shepherd's Bush, suddenly finds herself romanced by a tall, dark and deadly spy, she finds her life turned upside down. Could it have anything to do with the book she innocently took from the library, a book with a conspiracy theory about 'love' so devastating that every other copy has been destroyed by MI5 and the writer 'disappeared'? Marius Brill's debut novel is an infectious mix up of Tom Sharpe and Umberto Eco, and the irreverent humour of Douglas Adams. It's the ultimate novel to fall in love with.

MARIUS BRILL has been a freelance journalist for THE TIMES and SUNDAY TIMES among others, and has written comic radio scripts, most famously Brill's SLAUGHTER IN THE DARK, about a blind detective. He is now a professional hypnotist working from home, where he looks after his two children while his partner, a family doctor, is at work. This is his first novel.Review:
Grimwood continues to be one of the most stylish and innovative writers at work today, throwing off remarkable literary conceits with true panache. Ashraf Bey has had many roles since arriving in El Iskandryia from Seattle: detective, diplomat and killer. One thing he hasn't been, as yet, is a son to Moncef, Emir of Tunis - the father he has still to meet. Of course, Raf doesn't believe the Emir is his father anyway. And now it may be too late to find out, since the rumours that don't have Moncef escaping assassination have him hovering on the edge of death. And Raf has his own part in an unfolding political crisis that began decades earlier with US anti-globalisation riots and the Emir's refusal to ratify the 2005 UN Accord on Biotechnology. Grimwood in coruscating form.
