A Landing On The Sun is a 1991 novel by Michael Frayn, and was the Sunday Express Book of the Year. It was adapted into a 1994 TV movie with a screenplay written by the author.

Plot introduction

It concerns Jessel, a British civil servant working in the Cabinet Office who has been asked to investigate the unexplained death of Summerchild, also a civil servant, whose body was found outside the Ministry of Defence some 15 years earlier, in 1974. His investigations reveal that Summerchild was involved in the setting up of a 'Strategy Unit' reporting directly to the Prime Minister Harold Wilson (the book predates by 10 years the establishment by Tony Blair of his Strategy unit in 2001)
