On a drunken whim, Wallace Peech, a neurotic, ex-bank clerk, sets himself up as a private eye. It's just one of many fatally flawed moves in his life. When he realises that his first client, the volatile Rita, is married to Ivan Cherkassky, a Russian gangster, things can only get worse. And they do. Doctor Kamalika, Wallace's therapist, administers Copesan, an experimental drug, as part of a covert government scheme to rehabilitate mental patients in the community. The drug is supplied by Ivan. When Wallace discovers that both MI5 and MI6 are fighting for control of the case, it's too late to avoid catastrophe. Even the love of Lydia Crayfish, Doctor Kamalika's naÃ¯ve assistant, cannot prevent Wallace's bungling ineptitude from causing a political storm that reverberates from London to Moscow. A bloodthirsty tale of greed and corruption and the fickle finger of fate
