Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Yellow Dog

When Xan Meo is hit over the head by an unknown assailant he experiences a change in personality which makes the previously ideal father and husband subject to his more primitive urges. Another plot concerns the journalist, Clint Smoker whose work for a tabloid newspaper involves sordid sex and scandals and whose own sexlife revolves around an internet affair. The King of England's family life provides yet another plot where the future Queen has been filmed in the bath and the footage might be leaked to the press.
