By Len Deighton

An unnamed undercover agent - probably a similar reluctant hero of The Ipcress dossier - is distributed to Paris to convey a dossier of nuclear secrets and techniques to a French healthcare professional, yet quickly reveals himself sucked right into a twilight international of intercourse, blackmail and hidden cause, the place pal and enemy turn into indistinguishable.

A 'clinic' on Paris's street Foch designed to cater lavishly for a number of perversions, staffed via a bunch of sexually and intellectually high-powered women and built with units starting from an Iron Maiden to psychedelic truth-drugs -- that's the set-up operated via the enigmatic Monsieur Datt.

Naturally, it has a hidden goal: to collect dossiers of tape and movie on influential political consumers from East and West. Into this twilight global of decadence and hidden reasons come the brokers of 4 international powers.

Are they after Datt's pornographic blackmail dossiers? Or is their goal altogether extra lethal than a visit to the blue movies...?

This new reissue incorporates a foreword from the canopy clothier, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arnold Schwartzman, and a new advent through Len Deighton, which deals a desirable perception into the writing of the tale.
