From the publisher

Caroline and her young daughter have been abandoned, World War II has begun and Mr Fox offers them his help. Mr Fox is a spiv, a dealer in black-market food, but he can provide a roof over their heads, advice on bending the law and escaping creditors and a shared, if dubious, future.

“A little treasure… captures perfectly the atmosphere of wartime London.”—Manchester Evening News

“A minor classic… hunt down Mr Fox forthwith for its peerless evocation of an era.”—Daily Mail
