Product Description

A wildly entertaining new novel brilliantly skewering our contemporary world, centering around the very the object most people carry in their pockets, as much a blessing as a curse.

Meet Jonathan De'Ath, MI6 Agent, aka 'the Butcher'. The curious thing about the Butcher is that everyone who knows him - his washed-up old university lecturer father, his jumbling-bumbling mother, his hippy-dippy brothers, his so-called friends, his spooky colleagues and his multitudinous lovers - they all apply this epithet to him quite independently, each in ignorance of the others. He knows everyone calls him 'the Butcher' behind his back, but he also knows that they don't know the only real secret he maintains, encrypted in the databanks of his steely mind: Colonel Gawain Thomas, husband, father, highly-trained tank commander - is Jonathan De'Ath's longtime lover.

But when technology, love and violence finally converge in the wreckage of postwar Iraq, the Colonel and the spy's dalliance will determine the destiny of nations.

Uniting our most contemporary concerns - from the ubiquitous mobile phone to a family in chaos; from the horror of modern war, to the end of privacy - ''Phone'' is compelling and timely.
