Présentation de l'éditeur
That Mrs. Thatcher had an Irish great-grandmother is well-known. But did you Know that she had Irish cousins some-ways removed? What if one were the spitting-image of the Prime Minister?
This discovery set afoot a conspiracy to change the course of History. Behind it one of Europe's most secretive organisations - the Vegan Brigade, previously written of, only on rice-paper.
Did the unthinkable happen, or was it foiled by counter-intelligence, on sale at Woolworth's?
Could there be two Mrs. Thatchers? Three? More? A proliferation of Women of Mass Destruction?
The Great Powers are forced to act; Reagan, Gorbachev, Chairman Deng, the Pope, the Mafia all take a hand as the last decades of the century are reprised as never before.
• Who was the real denizen of Downing Street?
• How did Omslopo Gas lose its monopoly?

These and many other questions are answered in this thrilling tale of Conspiracy and gastronomy, of high ambition and low cunning, Western values and Eastern promise, of gangsters and doppel-gangsters.
Who is J. M. Syngamy? The manuscript arrived via third parties sworn to secrecy. Rumour abounds: a disaffected member of the Thatcher circle, a modern Scheherezade surviving a Bahrain seraglio, a medium after an open-air seance at Coole Park, a vegan fallen among carnivores, the Editor of a craggy island parish magazine. We may never know.
