AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Roy Temple and his friends are accused of espionage in the Cold War era, a cloud of suspicion will linger over them for years, although they are never charged with any crime. Twenty years later, Roy is a leading barrister and key adviser to the federal government, with a bold plan to resolve Australia′s political crisis. But the old allegations cast long shadows, and even those he wishes to help doubt his motivation - does he want to save the government, or save himself?' (Trove record)
