‘I opened the glove-pocket before me. Under some old maps and a packet of fruit-gums lay the key which had thumped onto the doormat weeks ago in Parsons Green. No label, no sign of what it might open, what it might reveal …’ Dirk’s fifth novel revisits the theme and some of the characters in Jericho.

‘A remarkable and highly readable comment on modern society’

Roy Hattersley, The Mail on Sunday
