Philip Fletcher, actor-murderer, is thrown into a jealous rage when he hears that his most hated rival is up for a knighthood. Fletcher desperately wants one too but can't immediately see how to go about it.
The death of a gossipy fellow actor and the subsequent threat of scandal to his family and colleagues opens up a tantalising possibility for Fletcher: he could always blackmail his way to a knighthood. Such a course, though, is perilous, involving undercover penetration of an S & M night-club. Is Fletcher up to the job? To what lengths will ambition take him? And is murder on the agenda – yet again?
A hilarious, satirical and very black novel from highly acclaimed young author Simon Shaw.
‘…the funniest crime fiction on this side of the Atlantic’
MARCEL BERLINS, 'The Times'
‘Shaw…is a dab hand at backstage bitchiness’
CHRISTOPHER HIRST, 'Financial Times'
Simon Shaw studied at Cambridge University and has since been working as an actor. He has written six previous Philip Fletcher novels. He lives in London.
