The concerns are rampant and moralistic in this thriller that centers on one Alan Hardy, a British TV interviewer who has made a profession out of ""being beastly to people."" Alan, in his thirties, has been victimized by his own Lolita complex, and photographs of himself and a willing fourteen-year-old have been dispatched leaving him sans wife, sans children, sans job and in the hands of the police. In trying to track down the vicious tattletale, Alan finds himself in plenty of distinguished company, including an M.P. and a famous gynecologist who commits suicide leaving a trail back to one of the biggest scandals of the decade. . . . You'll read it until every photograph has been developed.
