A story set in Dublin and Ireland of the 1950’s before Nelson’s Pillar was dynamited into a heap of rubble in O’Connell street.

The whimsical but lethal adventures of a low grade civil servant transferred to an intelligence department run by a misfit principal officer who has achieved power by investigating and embellishing trivial intrigue but who barely measures up when his subordinate stumbles on high level real subversion.

The bungling hero goes undercover and opens his inept career by unknowingly seeking lodgings in a brothel, getting himself arrested, and teaming up with an obscure detective, blackmails an army officer into disclosing information about a plan by former Nazi officers to steal state bullion.

The book offers glimpses of life as it was in the Dublin of the 1950s, evoking memories of a more leisurely lifestyle in the Irish capital but one which nonetheless seethed with hidden political and criminal turbulence.
