But the book is not about polotics, hardly even about terrorism. It is about love, hate, heroism and - above all - betrayal.A major bullion robbery told in all its details with gripping efficiency, even the clash of armed forces, are not much more than superb adornments to this astonishing book. Characters and morals are the heart of the matter, and are weirdly illuminated in the confrontation between Ashman and Cunningham, the centre piece of the story.

Cunningham lives up to the authors reference to him as the last great Shakespearian villian. Cunningham says: Youre doomed because you cant adapt. Youre out of date, like a knight in armour ... it doesnt take a hero to press a button. Not needed and not adaptable. Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Now cometh the hour of the adaptable man.And again: Remember what Walpole said - the worlds a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel ...Ashmans love affair was one of beauty and feeling. And when this work treats of love it is as moving as it is frightening when it deals with betrayal.Death of a Thin-Skinned Animal was a remarkable first novel, but this, its successor, is something quite out of the ordinary.
