A LITTLE WHITE DEATH
John Lawton (Atlantic Monthly, $23)
In 1963 London, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Troy investigates a murder/sex scandal involving two saucy ”twin” sisters, a government official, and a Russian agent.
While Troy takes early side trips to Beirut and Soviet Moscow, most of the story unfolds in England, right on the cusp of becoming swinging.
American readers will find much of the parliamentary plot completely impenetrable.
