A modern A TALE OF TWO CITIES by the bestselling author of SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN. Hector Chetwode-Talbot, Eck to his friends, has left the army and is slightly at a loss as to what to do next, when he is approached by an old army pal, Bilbo Mountwilliam.

But with the financial crash looming, Eck begins to ask himself if they are so very different...
