George and Leonora must win support from the upper class family of George’s high flying civil servant friend Adrian Cuthbert for Leonora to succeed with her ambition to train as a singer.
George’s knowledge of computers enables him to assist the FBI to uncover bribery and corruption in New York and Washington involving the secretive international criminal Jamil El Hassan who has a hold on Mercator Tinopolis.
The Minion or Master concept is explored in the relationships between family members, Soho gangsters, civil servants and US politicians.
