Summary
When the tabloids scream the news that Tory up-and-comer and arbiter of family values Duncan Matlock has been caught in an affair with an "escort" girl, no one is more stunned than Flora, his devoted wife. As her husband and the party machinery behind him expect, Flora maintains a loyal façade. But in private, her anguish hardens into rage after erotic telephone tapes reveal the extent of her husband's duplicity. Employing strange sexual games and covert political tactics, she plots the ultimate revenge.
