Abstract:

"Autumn 1933, and for once struggling writer James Ross seems to have fallen on his feet. Not only has the Labour Exchange fixed him up with a day-job collecting rents in Soho, but friendly Mr. Samuelson is employing him front-of-house in the Toreador nightclub. On the other hand, Soho looks an increasingly dangerous place to be. Mosley's Blackshirts are on the prowl and somebody is raiding the dirty bookshops and smashing nightclub windows in a quest for moral decency. Coerced into undercover work after an unfortunate incident at the Toreador, James finds himself infiltrating the Blackshirts' Chelsea HQ and spying on a top-secret dinner party attended by a royal guest."--Back cover.
