From the Publisher:
England,1938. War looms, but the Prime minister's talks with Hitler in Munich seem to result in a pact of peace. Now Mount, a secret service officer, is sent on an undercover mission to Berlin. But with all this talk of peace he starts to wonder whether his mission has any point. All until a meeting with Toumlin and two good-time girls from the local bar results in a broken chair. Could this chair have been not only the key to his mission but also the key to peace. Set during an alternative version of 1938 with Bill James' trademark satirical take on events. (alternate history).
"James creates a skillfully crafted story filled with his trademark humor and rat-a-tat dialogue that changes from laugh-out-loud hilarious to darkly acerbic to chillingly demonic in the blink of an eye. An inventive and clever must-read for espionage fans." (starred review) - Emily Melton 05/01/2011
