Riassunto: Paris, the early sixties: Ambassador Paul van Heerden is the only South African to whose advice the French Foreign Office will listen; and yet, embroiled in an affair with the promiscuous, seductive Nicolette, his passion obscures even an event as significant as the Sharpville massacre. Unbeknown to him, Nicolette is also mistress to the Embassy's Third Secretary, Stephen Keyter. Almost inevitably, Van Heerden and Keyter are seduced by the potent sensuality of the city's night life - and into a fierce triangle of disinformation, deception and intrigue. By the time both men try to reconcile the conflict in their lives, events have spiralled far beyond their control; and falling foul of the system exacts from each a terrible price.
