Author Ray Smith has correlated the recent electronic version of the Confession with the Dubai Typescript and the even earlier Hong Kong Holograph. In a feat of unparalleled investigative journalism he has travelled the world corroborating the sordid and still highly sensitive details which are to this day denied by the intelligence services of five nations. A saga of perjury, speculation and perversion.
“An entertaining and shamelessly obstreperous romp that holds nothing sacred.”—Good Reports
“For all the surface sheen to the picaresque, a dark, Swiftian distaste for the human animal runs beneath. The difficulty of assigning obvious targets to the book’s deeper impulses keeps the reader off-balance, never quite sure where to laugh and where to wince.”—Globe and Mail
“The only thing that can ever be safely stated about Smith is that he is among the country’s best yet under-appreciated writers — a novelist and satirist of the first order whose witty and irreverent prose have surfaced once again in a brand new novel, The Flush of Victory“—Westmount Examiner
