Summary (From the publisher):

'He was a man who needed to think well of himself.'

John Ducane, a respected Whitehall civil servant, is asked to investigate the suicide of a colleague. As he pursues his inquiry he uncovers a shabby, evil world of murder, blackmail and black magic. He begins to feel more trapped than trapping.

In contrast to stagnant summer London, Octavian and Kate Gray's adoring community on the Dorset coast seems to offer Ducane refuge, but even here the after-effects of violence poison an atmosphere already electric with adolescent quarrels and intrigue. After a swim into the underworld Ducane begins to realize that niceness is not enough. No one in the book is good.
