Charming, attractive, brilliant. They even make a simple game of backgamon seem something mysterious. Two lovely young ladies with all the allure of playing with nitride glycerol. Sheila Northcott, novelist, women's libber, soon to be divorcee. And Lady Greer, swinging wife of Sir Trevor Stevens, MP.
