"London, 1934. Philip Erskine, gentleman entomologist and Nazi sympathizer, is distracted from his beetle breeding by an interest in eugenics, and by one beguiling human specimen: Seth 'Sinner' Roach, a Jewish, homosexual, nine-toed runt of a boxer. Seventy-five years later, a crime scene clue sets a hapless collector of wartime memorabilia on the trail of scientist and subject, leading toward a danger that may not have died with the third reich, after all..."--P.

Mickey Spillane meets E.M.Forster on the playing fields of Eton before being wisked away to a wild party thrown by William S. Burroughs tricked out in full S.S.regalia including ceremonial dagger and rimless monocle--this is a full flavor novel with the inevitability of a planetary orbit.
