商品説明

The story begins when Martin Dwyer, the son of a wealthy industrialist meets a Middle East potentate at Epsom Downs on Derby Day. They team up to facilitate the growth of both party’s business interests and seek a suitable premises from which to operate within an hour or so’s drive of London.


Henry Bagshot is a mild mannered and genial giant. Whilst at University, his attractive girl friend, later to be his wife, Jackie, has plans to make them some money; firstly hiring him out as a male escort and then persuading him to become a publican.


The machinations of his resourceful partner result in Henry abandoning earlier hopes of a career in sports management and their becoming young tenants of ‘The Lamb’, a small traditional thatched inn in the pretty Saigh Valley village of Nettlesham. Their impact is immediate, as Henry throws himself into the role of pub landlord, instigating various functions, such as the boat trip and pumpkin show, whilst Jackie’s eclectic tastes and ambition promote the pursuit of her prurient interests.


When the brewery announces the closure, for economic reasons, of their country pub, they move a few miles down the road to take over a larger, town pub. Jackie, however, has another agenda and is quick to seize a business opportunity when unbeknown to her husband she buys the ‘Lamb’ with the help of the ruthless Martin Dwyer, satisfying his and the Sheik’s objective.


It is not long before Jackie, lured into the world of high society with wealthy and mega rich clients, finds herself struggling to maintain a relationship with her more mundane husband and leaves him after being exposed on television on Gold Cup day at Royal Ascot.


However, Jackie discovers that sometimes wealth is not always all it seems and she becomes enmeshed in a world of arms dealing, people smuggling, kidnap and pornography.


The problems start when her brothel is used by her businessman partner, acting on behalf of a motor industry pressure group to kidnap the Minister of Transport and take compromising photographs in a bid to get him to change policies. The police investigation leads to her and her business associate Arthur Dennison, a man of dubious background and even more dubious sexual proclivities.


Jackie believes she has reached the apotheosis of her career when she is invited to Royal Ascot by a Middle Eastern potentate. However, she is so badly mistreated she is forced to re-evaluate her life and as a consequence, determines to exact revenge and retribution. Her plan backfires and the Arab Prince orders Dwyer to murder Jackie with the aid of a treacherous, senior Scotland Yard policeman who ‘advises’ the potentate. It is left to Henry and the local chief of police, Chief Inspector Ben Tooley, to rescue her as her life ebbs away.
