    Tim Simpson is busy tracking down paintings by Sir William Nicholson and his "abstract" son, Ben Nicholson, for White's Art Fund, as well as looking into an investment in a film and photographic archive for his bosses. So it comes as a shock when he is accused of murder.

    A razor-sharp satire on the rise and fall of Tony Blair, told as an Edwardian boy’s school story. A wickedly funny tale of jam puffs and missing rifles in which the guilty, as usual in politics, escape punishment. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is pure coincidence. The animals, however, are real.
