The Right Honourable Leslie Titmuss, the abrasive high-flyer who rose from poverty to power in Paradise Postponed, is now Secretary of State at H.E.A.P., the Ministry of Housing, Ecological Affairs and Planning, and in pursuit of the beautiful Jenny Sidonia, widow of a socialist Oxford don.
Market forces are sweeping up the Rapstone Valley and secret plans are being made to change it. Titmuss Regained is the story of what happens when these seismic movements shake the Secretary of State’s back garden.
