Synopsis of this title

Lionel 'Buster' Crabb became renowned during the Second World War for his amazing feats of underwater daring. After the war, he was celebrated for embodying a particular English ideal - a love for King and Country - that seemed to be dying out. Then, in 1956, during a visit to Britain by Nikita Khrushchev, who had arrived by ship, Commander Crabb disappeared. Some thought he had perished while attempting to inspect the Soviet vessel; others that he had been kidnapped and forced to work for the USSR. Out of this mystery, Tim Binding has spun a wondrous piece of fiction. It is the story of a man who has made deep personal sacrifices for the sake of higher ideals and who must, towards the end of his days, measure their meaning and their worth.

Reviews of this title


D J Taylor, The Guardian, 11 June, 2005
'Ingenious ... consistently entertaining and resourceful ... a convincing portrait of a restless postwar world'

Iain Finlayson, Saga Book of the Month, June 2005
'His finest novel so far ... genuinely authentic ... a consistently fine writer on English sense and sensibility'

Sean O'Brien, TLS, 24 June 2005
'A range of linguistic fire-power often missing from contemporary fiction ... A remarkable feat of compression, representing a significant artistic advance'

Daily Mail, June 17, 2005
'His triumph is to have created a marvellous, anachronistic hero'

Sunday Telegraph, June 19, 2005
'A rare glimpse into the heart of an almost-extinct species of Englishman, one that Binding clearly loves and understands perfectly'
