An old Secret Service plan of twenty and more years seeks completion, and Joe, Chief Executive of Martins Bank, is again called into the fray. With Russian infiltration of the Bank of England, and Martins on the brink of covert Russian take-over, the Service watches and controls from high up somewhere on th south Bank, planning every move of its field operatives with ruthless precision. But every plan has the potential to go wrong, especially with so much riding on the outcome - the security of Sterling and sovereignty of Britain. And every operative is at risk - from themselves, as well as outside forces. In 'Contango' Chris Dunn brings together characters from his first and second thrillers, and maps out a London at once familiar and frightening. Handling ther complex plot with consummate ease, he has the reader in his grip until every last thread has been stiched. 'The books offer a marvellous romp through the worlds of journalism, espionage and finance... The pace and spirit of the novels are superb... The struggle between the invading forces and the staid gentility of the British establishment gives the novels much of their action... It is the underlying theme of class conflict that truly drives [the series]. The attempts by the characters to break free from Britian's predetermined pigeonholes and alter their destinies give the novels their deeper grip... Roll the sequel.' The Wall Street Journal Europe.
