He was also a passionate angler, and his two main interests eventually interact to set the scene - at Tincup Fishing Lodge in Canadas northerly territory of The Yukon - for his death in 1995.

The book is mainly in the form of a narrative written by an acquaintance of Simon who reconstructs the story from the latters diaries. Action shifts between England, Czechoslovakia, Austria and Canada. The settings and social environments used in the book are all authentic as are the descriptions of military equipment and intelligence-gathering methods.
