Mark Kent has left the army and is still making the transition to civilian life as a private detective. His client wants him to find her missing son and the search reveals a glimpse of a social class clinging to a way of life, and prejudices, despite changes in society and the influx of wealthy foreign nationals. #Gentlemen’s Agreement the first in the collection, Gentlemen’s Agreement and Other Stories also shows how appearances can be deceptive, and that a home and a job might only be a semblance of respectability for people’s schemes and struggles. The inclusion of a Russian angle happened accidentally, or else it was my sub-consciousness writing. There are vague similarities between true events which occurred in Britain but I have left any left details obscure so as not to offend friends or family who might be affected.
