9780099466185: The High Flyer

When Thomas Wavery arrives in Gibraltar on his way to take up his last posting as HM Consul General to Abyla, his passport is stolen by a barbary ape. Ignominy and shame have dogged his steps since he lost both the coveted Lisbon Embassy and his wife as a result of an affair with a younger woman.
