From Amazon.co.uk
The storyline, which concerns a student who has been set a series of 'Treasure Hunt' type clues by the gentleman leader of an extremist club, has the unfortunate male running around London throughout the course of one night a la Anneka Rice. Instead of winning some cash from Kenneth Kendall however, if successful, he earns the right to publish a book which would expose the League of Promethius for what they really are. Oh and he also gets to live. If unsuccessful, or if he cheats, his friends or family are at risk of being killed.
I have to say the clues are extremely difficult, unless you have an in-depth knowledge of London history, but I can claim with great smugness and satisfaction that I managed to solve the first clue (but none of the others!)
The narrative for the first nine tenths of the book is riveting and I found it difficult to put the book down. Unfortunately the ending wasn't able to top off what had gone before and I was disappointed with its anti climax.

A book from the Robertson Cleanup. I received 4 boxes of books by just turning up and being on my way to Canberra.

I will release as many as I can and find homes for the rest.
