The central character is a bright, attractive, and strongwilled single woman working in the male-dominated environment of a major daily newspaper. One of her editorials angers a powerful supporter of the ruling political party- the government puts pressure on her through the newspaper- and the woman retaliates, using a network of friends and relatives - including an actress who was once closely involved with the prime minister, and a fellow journalist with writers block - to defend herself.

The result is a slyly accurate picture of contemporary Japan that not only tells us about the role of women there in the 1990s, and about bribery and coercion at the highest levels of society, but treats us to the sort of brilliant gossip that makes a good novel great fun to read.
