Simon Carter, secretary of London Zoo in 1970, has accepted responsibility and power to the prejudice of his gifts as a naturalist. But power is more than just the complicated game played by the old men at the zoo in the satirical first half of this novel - it lies very near to violence.

Educated at Westminster and Merton College, Oxford he joined the British Museum as a cataloguer before being called for service in 1941.
