'Asylum - I want asylum!' Out of the night, Peter Robinson appears at the British Embassy clamouring for admittance. He begs for protection from the secret police - and so begins a masterly tale of political and diplomatic intrigue: two men are locked in a deadly confrontation, one a self-proclaimed British spy, the other Her Majesty's Ambassador. Slowly His Excellency's well-ordered regime is undermined by this unwelcome visitor, and the mounting tension keeps the reader guessing until the final shattering climax - a searing examination of two men brought together by circumstances and torn apart by political manipulation.
