Jimmy Kavanagh has a genetic condition where he absorbs and stores iron from his diet over and above the body's requirements - Haemochromatosis. He is unaware of this, but as time progresses, with increased iron levels he exhibits many unusual traits : oxidisation (rusting), becoming magnetised, and having strong bones (excess iron is stored in bone marrow). Through various childhood experiences he realises he is different but doesn't know why. After a significant event in which he saves Barbara, the woman of his dreams, from possible death he realises he can control his magnetism. His life is further complicated after coming to the attention of the KGB. They are interested in all things paranormal, and the CIA who are determined to stop the Russians. Life for Jimmy is further complicated by Sheila. Her father is Irish though she was born in Australia. She has Haemochromatosis but of course, from the Southern hemisphere her polarity is reversed. Will Jimmy and Barbara live happily ever after? Can he manage to thwart the Russians, and CIA. Since opposites attract does his future lay with Sheila?

Editorial Reviews

Minter manages to do it again, blending simple everyday life with the most extreme and incredulous events, all combined to produce another piece of humoristic brilliance.J.J Collins... vintage Minter in the combination of the catastrophic with the everyday. The humour of the characters and the situations keeps the whole thing frothing.Tony Sims I love James Minter's sense of humour and his choice of characters in this fast London based comedy. Hilarious spy thriller with a serious edge. June FinniganYou don't have to have Haemochromatosis to enjoy this book..., it's witty and gives the funny ups and downs to having Hereditary Haemochromatosis. A. ValentineAn unexpectedly good read... Although ... aimed at us with the condition, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who likes their spy thrillers with their tongue firmly in their cheek.Peter Morgan
