Personal stylist Juste Valadier is called in to turn Tarquin into a more attractive proposition. Also in attendance is a sinister Eastern European hit-man seeking out his victim and willing to eliminate anyone in his way.

Somebody with something to gain? Somebody with something to hide? Or simply somebody she had upset?

SynopsisHistory lecturer Nigel Appleton has been granted a Bursary to work on a book about Tiglath Pileser III, King of Assyria. His base is an island off the coast of Cornwall. The island and the bursaries are presided over by the redoubtable Mrs Greyshott, guardian of the cultural and moral standards of the island and not a fan of commercialism. As a result, the arrival of Nigel's high-powered agent, Fenella Babbage, is not entirely welcome. Less welcome, from Fenella's point of view, is the appearance of rival agent and ex-husband, Elliott Fitch. Fenella needs to persuade the predatory Elliott and Mrs Greyshott that her interest in Nigel is personal rather than professional. Can Nigel avoid joining in? Plainly the answer is in the negative.
