Cornelius, hero of the needle gun, slams his way through fratricide, incest, and murder in the consumerland he favours as he battles his way into a phony le Corbusier chateau, on into Sweden and then to amonths-long party in Ladbroke Grove, all the time with a bizarre chorus of the killed and killers absorbed in Bond-like action.
