It brings to life the turbulent times of the 1970s, as it tells the story of a group of young people.
It follow Pete Bridford and the close-knit group of friends who he gathers around him.
He has a glittering academic career at Cambridge University, but, amidst a time of student protests and political upheaval and turmoil, this career comes to an end.
He leaves academia for the world of business and makes some startling a perhaps unsettling discoveries. For example he exactly how much a secret can be worth and he also discovers that some friends are not really friends after all...
The series takes the reader through to the early days of the government of Margaret Thatcher which began in May 1979.
At this point, Pete must come to some important realisations. For example, which side should he, actually be on?
The series is a trilogy The Creators, Road to Nowhere, Flight to Destruction and The Turnaround.
It's an interesting series of books and brings to life a rather bizarre period of modern British social history from someone who obviously played a role in many key events.
An interesting Christmas gift.
