Secrets and Lies : Now Profumo is Dead, I Can Finally Reveal the Truth About the Most Shocking Scandal in British Politics. Paperback
Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the Sixties sexual revolution as the Pill.
Having found fame and success as a model - the portrait of her naked astride a chair is iconic - her short affair with the minister for war, John Profumo, led to his downfall at the end of Harold Macmillan's Conservative government, and was at the heart of the social and political earthquake that followed.
She became the subject of scandal, intrigue and gossip and was tried for perjury and briefly jailed following the death of Stephen Ward, the socialite who had introduced her to Profumo.
Now that those directly involved are no longer alive, Christine is finally able to tell the full story of that extraordinary time.
