The narrator, a journalist, gets into various difficult situations and finds himself pursued by various attempts on life. He has formed various liaisons during his life including one at University, together with an apparently stable one later on with whom he quarrels. He has also photographed and identified himself to a terrorist. He does not know whom to trust and tries to hide away in a London squat. He cannot escape the final confrontation.


Michael Gouda was born in London, England. He went to Bristol University, obtained a respectable degree and took up teaching in the Worcestershire town of Evesham.

He took early retirement to a limestone Cotswold cottage, where he lived with a series of neurotic collie dogs, a domineering cat, and a determination to write. Since then he has written over one hundred and fifty short stories and published longer works with Dreamspinner Press and M.L.R. Press.

Unfortunately an attack of Polymyalgia rheumatica, a type of chronic inflammation of the muscles, meant he had to go into a home from which he still writes and publishes his LGBT stories. He likes to introduce incidents from his own deplorable past into his stories of crime and misadventure. Being a romantic at heart, he rarely allows a tragic ending, however downbeat may be the indications in between.
