In Alden Douglas' hilarious and heartfelt comic novel, two unlikely partners-one American, one Russian-pool their talents to build and operate London's most exclusive bordello. Wrapped within this outer story is an unforgettable romantic adventure... Confident, brilliant, but dangerously naive, Bucky Newman boards the red-eye to London, eager to take on his first international assignment and fulfill his promises to his family back in Buffalo. A supremely talented IT consultant, his skills have made him a man in global demand. Bucky assumes his live-in girlfriend Dayna will soon follow him across the pond, and that romance will flourish along with career success. But a drunken argument with a blowhard client quickly costs him both his job and his girl, and sends his life in a wildly different direction. In a pub in seedy Tottenham he encounters Yuri Dolgorukov, the construction manager for a wealthy and ambitious oligarch. Yuri throws Bucky a much-needed lifeline-a chance to build and manage a private gentlemen's club in Belgrave Square. The only catch: under its glittering exterior, the club will be a cathouse. So begins the riotous tale of International Fulfillment, and the eccentric characters who parade through this "opulent house of ill repute, for well-heeled men of high repute." More than just a risqué yarn, Bucky of Belgravia is the story of a young man's search for lasting love, and a life that amounts to something greater than being "a one instead of a zero." Confronted and challenged by Sangita Sharma-a courageous, resolute charity worker-Bucky is forced to acknowledge his own dire moral dilemma. In response, he wages a furious cyber war against Britain's worst sex-sellers and slavers, then joins Sharma on a harrowing raid to rescue exploited women. Ultimately, he will even rebel against his scheming oligarch master. Ranging over art and architecture, history and technology, sex and power, class and culture, Bucky of Belgravia offers a hugely funny and revealing tale of a young man's path to knowledge, and a kaleidoscopic view of the world's greatest city at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
