Summary
Ivor Tesham is a handsome, single, young member of Parliament whose political star is on the rise. When he meets a woman in a chance encounter--a beautiful, leggy, married woman named Hebe--the two become lovers obsessed with their trysts, spiced up by what the newspapers like to call "adventure sex." After things go horribly wrong, Ivor begins to receive anonymous letters that reveal astonishingly specific details about the affair and its aftermath. Somehow he must keep his role from being uncovered--and his political future from being destroyed by scandal
Summary
Ivor Tesham, a member of Parliament on track for higher office, begins a passionate affair with Hebe, the wife of a colleague, but when a mock kidnapping goes terribly wrong and results in murder, he becomes trapped in a dangerous game of his own making
