Bit of a wide boy, Terry. Got a spot of form, eye for the ladies, a real rough diamond some might say. Not without his virtues though, as his campaign for open government shows. No secrets, that’s Terry’s secret. Allied to his charm that is, of course.
Only one person finds it easy to resist his charm and counter his arguments and that’s Hilary – a serious and dedicated young Civil Servant in the Home Office, who just happens to know the truth about the case in which Terry is currently interested. She despises him and everything he stands for. But then why is she to be found one evening walking through the back streets behind the Strand, to the run-down block where Terry’s pressure group has its headquarters?
