The novel begins with transatlantic e-mails between two old friends discussing their impending marriages, Flora to Dillon, Financial products design. 6ft 2in. Buns of custard, and Georgie to Felix, a medical researcher investigating the mysteries of Lightollers Syndrome.

All seems well until their glacial, glamorous former boss Donna suggests that they try to seduce each others man as a trial of their fidelity and commitment. Against Flora and Georgies better instincts both find themselves playing the game. To their relief, they find that their initial attempts at seduction are rebuffed but then as Heartswap is at pains to insist, men are never as simple nor as reliable as that. The prose is sometimes lacking in wit and humour, the guys are rather stereotypical and the story spirals into increasingly black and rather unexpected territory. However, Brayfields novel is still a well-observed and acerbic comedy of manners between the sexes in the economic acropolis of London at the beginning of the new millennium.
