Damian Baxter is very, very rich - and he's dying. He lives alone
in a big house in Surrey, looked after by a chauffeur, butler, cook
and housemaid. He has but one concern: who should inherit his
fortune... PAST IMPERFECT is the story of a quest. Damian Barker
wishes to know if he has a living heir. By the time he married in
his late thirties he was sterile (the result of adult mumps), but
what about before that unfortunate illness? He was not a virgin.
Had he sired a child? A letter from a girlfriend from these times
suggests he did. But the letter is anonymous. Damian contacts
someone he knew from their days at university. He gives him a list
of girls he slept with and sets him a task: find his heir...
