About this title


Oliver Mandrake is corpulent, easy-going, sedentary and anything but the conventional image of a hero. Yet, for reasons perhaps clear only to themselves, his masters at the Foreign Office have made him into a sort of overseas trouble-shooter, an appointment that puzzles and disturbs Mandrake almost as much as it does those with whom he comes into contact or opposition.
In The Strelsau Dimension Mandrake finds himself behind the Iron Curtain, engaged on a special mission of intrigue and double-dealing and - along with others - subject to terrifying dangers. Bufthatis only the beginning of a description of this delightful black comedy, elegantly written and flavoured with the spice of Anthony Hope's Ruritanian novels and George Macdonald Fraser's Flashman stories. The Iron Curtain and diplomatic backgrounds are wholly authentic, the author having served in Eastern Europe, but everything has been given a highly comic twist which makes this book the most original contribution to the art of the international political thriller for a very longtime.
