He was out of her league. She was out of her depth. When Miranda, the Miss Lonely Hearts of Shepherd's Bush, suddenly finds herself romanced by a tall, dark and deadly spy, she finds her life turned upside down. Could it have anything to do with the book she innocently took from the library, a book with a conspiracy theory about 'love' so devastating that every other copy has been destroyed by MI5 and the writer 'disappeared'? Marius Brill's debut novel is an infectious mix up of Tom Sharpe and Umberto Eco, and the irreverent humour of Douglas Adams. It's the ultimate novel to fall in love with.
