"It is in the midst of a fiercely hot summer in England some years hence - everything is going to smash. Panic, rage, fear, street fighting - the city people are fleeing to the countryside. The Red Revolution has seized England in its mouth.
"Amidst this carnival of violence an intense personal drama is being acted by the Marquis of Fane; his sister Lady Veronica Wensleadale; Ann Croome, a lovely typist-secretary; and Gregory Sallust, cynical veteran journalist with rare powers of intrigue.
"How England shook under the smashing blows of the Red Revolution, and how an idyllic love arose out of the fearful carnage make a book that throbs with adventure, humor and physical thrills" - from the dust wrapper blurb on the U.S. edition.
