With Britain on the eve of a neck-and-neck election, a nice juicy scandal is all it would take to tip the balance. But scandal isn't exactly on the agenda of the new Jemima Shore Investigates TV program, which centers on aspects of aging...until Jemima interviews batty, tipsy, vindictive Lady Imogen Swain. Determined to Tell All on the telly about her illicit romance thirty years ago with today's distinguished Foreign Secretary Burgo Smyth, the erstwhile society beauty comes armed with diaries and love letters. Amid dire hints that these are the kinds of secrets that could get a woman killed, she also vows to divulge everything she knows about the infamous Faber Affair - and the journalist whose baffling disappearance while on trial for selling government secrets had threatened ruin for her lover.Already Lady Imogen's on the phone to everyone - including the Sunday Opinion - to advertise her pending revelations. That is, until she makes a headfirst exit one stormy night from the balcony of her ramshackle town house. When her private papers are nowhere to be found, Jemima is left with one diary and a multitude of questions.show more
