Bentinck's Agent

(2013)
A Novella by

 
 
Jack Turner is a draft-dodger. Anxious not to be sent to fight in Viet Nam, he has ended up in London instead. By the mid 1980s he is single, approaching middle age, with only failed careers and failed relationships behind him. Then, much to his surprise, he is headhunted by a literary agency.
His first client is Roger Bentinck - a man purporting to be a retired MI6 agent, who wants to write a memoir ... a memoir Her Majesty's Government would much rather he didn't write.
Bentinck is an odd combination, part slob, part aesthete, part rebel, part patriot ... a combination that makes him both attractive and repellent. But Jack is a literary agent and he has no clients. He has one task ... agent to agent, he has to get the book out of Bentinck, whatever the cost...
