Summary (From the publisher):

In this, his first collection of short stories, Douglas Hurd combines his political insight and fictional finesse to provide ten tales of intrigue, deception, war - and startling perception.

Delving where politicians are forbidden to go, he explores the shadows behind the failures and fruits of diplomacy, weaving fictional characters into factual backdrops. Behind the killing machines of Bosnia and Serbia we meet people whose lives have been destroyed by truths, half-truths, heroism and lies. A journalist attempts to rewrite the Falklands history - until he encounters reality. And amidst the olive groves of Tuscany, shades of Agatha Christie turn a house party into hell as blackmail and the black past rear their heads.

Drawing on his own extensive experience as a traveller, writer and politician, Douglas Hurd has created a rich and unique cocktail of entertainment and enlightenment; served with equal measure of tension and tragedy, hope and humanity.
