Sir Ivor Chasen - top English diplomat - heads home in his Porsche, beside him an exotic woman he's just met at a cocktail party. A sheet of lightning suddenly turns night into day, and the figure of a man appears for a split second in the road, dead ahead. Chasen swerves to no avail. So begins a nightmarish existence for Sir Ivor, whose successful career and marriage are abruptly threatened by kidnap and extortion. "A gripping tale of a powerful man's descent into darkness told by a master storyteller." Sydney Morning Herald.
