A new type of autocratic politician dominates the political landscape.

With the deliberate appointment by the Prime Minister of an unsuitable candidate
for the top job of C in MI6, trouble begins. The new man sweeps people out.
Most of them die by accident or suicide.

Sir Charles, a loyal subject and member of a family that has been part of the ruling elite
for generations, knows he will be next. He and his colleagues from Australia, France,
and the United States of America have to find out why they are being attacked.
They must meet the challenge; failure will mean certain death.

Caught up in the maelstrom facing the security services of the western world,
the plans of a crook go drastically awry when one of his political contacts
dies in a young man’s bed. The international threads of business intertwine with the
greed of politicians as a few loyal officers save the Service.
Love blossoms between those caught up in the business,
and in a small house outside Marrakesh, Katharine acts to lift the black pain inflicted upon
her after the brutal death of her lover in 1973.

A Still Point of the Turning World
The man nodded a ‘hello’ to the jogger running towards him on the river path as they passed. Seconds later, the man was flat on his front, his head deep in the grass, the nettles towering above him. In a swift and well-practiced action, the runner had turned and jumped on the man from behind, forcing him off the path into the long grass. The assailant sat on his back, using his considerable weight to keep him face down and to prevent him from moving his body. The action occurred extremely quickly and with no warning, which meant that there was little he could do to respond. ‘What are you doing? Get off me,’ he began into the grass. The tall muscular man controlled the inept struggles of his quarry, who was no match for the height, weight and fitness of the young attacker. The killer shifted his weight to enable him to press the handle of a sharpened kitchen knife into the palm of the man’s right hand. ‘Why? Why me?’ he shouted. There was no response. ‘Wait until Sir Charles finds out,’ he continued as the other forcibly crushed his fingers around the handle, raised his head, and cut his throat in a single, controlled, well-practised, movement. Gurgling blood splashed out, colouring the grass a light red as it ran into the earth. Pain, loss of bodily functions, and the physical disorientation accompanying such a violent and unexpected experience left the victim dazed and rapidly loosing consciousness.
‘He won’t know. He’s next. When the police look at your computer, they’ll find it’s full of very nasty images. They’ll quickly reach the conclusion that you knew you’d be found
out. A nice little open and shut case of suicide; you embarrassed the Service.’
In the last moments of life, he gave a deathly pale look of defiance, as if to say ‘But they’re not that stupid.’
The attacker smiled. He answered the wordless expression. ‘Don’t delude yourself. The coroner won’t be asking any questions or doing too many embarrassing tests. Enjoy your rest. You’ll be found in an hour or so, so don’t worry.’
