The Girl On The Wall
The setting of THE GIRL ON THE WALL is the Suez War and the first stirrings of the movement for nuclear disarmament. Joe and two friends are college lecturers who search in the Cotswolds for an underground base rumoured to be a safe place for important people.
Love is mixed with politics and Joe's romances are vividly portrayed, from failure through to success. His life becomes more complicated when further Cotswold exploration reveals an elaborate underground seat of government. Joe's subsequent adventures are a thriller centred on official secrecy and cover-ups leading to graphic encounters with the security forces. It is a story of yesterday for today, with an upbeat ending.
