On a trip to Leningrad, English antique dealer Paul Hussey finds it more difficult than he expected to sell 20 dozen dresses on the black market. Meanwhile his American wife Belinda who is coming to terms with her latent lesbianism, has disappeared into a Soviet Hospital. This novel was inspired by the same trip to Leningrad that also inspired Burgess's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
