From the Back Cover:

A 'clinic' on Paris's Avenue Foch designed to cater lavishly for multiple perversions, staffed by a group of sexually and intellectually high-powered girls and equipped with devices ranging from an Iron Maiden to psychedelic truth-drugs – that's the set-up operated by the enigmatic Monsieur Datt.

Naturally, it has a hidden purpose: to compile dossiers of tape and film on influential political clients from East and West. Into this twilight world of decadence and hidden motives come the agents of four world powers. Are they after Datt's pornographic blackmail dossiers? Or is their purpose altogether more deadly than a trip to the blue movies…?

'The poet of the spy story'

'For sheer readability he has no peer'

'A first-rate storyteller who rarely if ever strikes a false note'
