Joe Joyce began his career as a journalist in the days before mobile phones and computers when much of a reporter's time was spent trying to find a public phone that worked, and didn't have a queue of sharp-elbowed competitors.

Off the Record was his first fiction, a sort of farewell to journalism which turned out to be laughably premature. These days he  writes mostly historical fiction (in which category this book can now be included although it was more or less contemporary when written).
