The inimitable hero Dan Starkey gets caught up in the world of writing (he can handle that), terrorists (he's been there before), and movie hype (more frightening than anything yet encountered) in a cracking adventure that takes him from Dublin to the Cannes Film Festival. And it's not just bullets that Dan is dodging, when a smouldering romance threatens the frequently-rocky balance of his marriage to Patricia.
