Politics mingle with homoerotic adventures as Persky searches to understand the fall of communism. History and philosophy are mixed with wit and sexual candour, offering an intriguing look at democracy at work in Eastern Europe.

"In 1963, just before President Kennedy is due to arrive in Berlin, English P. I. John Holderness receives a phone call from an old American friend, who wants his help in getting a woman out of East Germany. But this escapade merely serves to set up Holderness' fascinating backstory and the reason behind the friendship between the two men. Once a cat burglar, Holderness narrowly avoided an RAF court martial near the end of the war, instead agreeing to recruitment by British intelligence. His exploits in Berlin (not always in line with the goals of his employer) offer a vivid and atmospheric recreation of World War II and the Cold War era."
