Summary
"Welcome to Amberlough City, the illustrious but corrupt cosmopolitan beacon of Gedda. The radical One State Party--nicknamed the Ospies--is gaining popular support to unite Gedda's four municipal governments under an ironclad, socially conservative vision. Not everyone agrees with the Ospies' philosophy, including master spy Cyril DePaul and his lover Aristide Makricosta, smuggler and emcee at the popular Bumble Bee Cabaret. When Cyril's cover is blown on a mission, however, he must become a turncoat in exchange for his life. Returning to Amberlough under the Ospies' watchful eye, Cyril enters a complex game of deception. One of his concerns is safeguarding Aristide, who refuses to let anyone--the crooked city police or the homophobic Ospies--dictate his life. Enter streetwise Cordelia Lehane, top dancer at the Bee and Aristide's runner, who could be the key to Cyril's plans--if she can be trusted. As the twinkling lights of nightclub marquees yield to the rising flames of a fascist revolution, these three will struggle to survive using whatever means--and people--necessary. Including each other"--

Summary
Cosmopolitan Amberlough City is home to intelligence operative Cyril DePaul and his lover, Aristide Makricosta, whose role as emcee at the Bumble Bee Cabaret serves as a front for his criminal activities. But perhaps not for much longer, due to the rise of the authoritarian One State Party. If you've ever wished Christopher Isherwood had written political fantasy, Amberlough -- with its well-drawn characters and a vivid setting reminiscent of the Weimar Republic -- is the book for you. -- Description by Gillian Speace
