An Affair of State: The Profumo Case and the Framing of Stephen Ward examines the scandal that shook the British government in 1963 and tells how the establishment tried to hush it up by framing a society osteopath on procuring charges.

The book presents new evidence to clear Stephen Ward, who committed suicide following his involvement in the scandal, of espionage. Based on Ward’s own tapes and writings, numerous interviews and previously classified FBI documents, this fast-paced book brings one of the most fascinating scandals of the 20th century back to life.

Written with Caroline Kennedy and published by Cape (London) and Simon and Schuster (New York).
