Review:

‘Few novelists are as consummate as Barbara Taylor Bradford at keeping the reader turning the page. She is one of the world’s best at spinning yarns.’ Guardian

From the Back Cover:

Sebastian, the fifty-six-year-old patriarch of the Locke clan, is handsome, charismatic, a man of intense charm and intelligence. He heads up the philanthropic Locke foundation, funded by the vast family fortune built by his forefathers.

Committed to relieving the suffering of those in genuine need, Locke travels the globe, personally giving away millions a year to the poor, the sick, and the victims of natural disasters and wars. He is seen as a beacon of light in today's darkly violent world. That is why the police are so baffled when Sebastian is found dead in mysterious circumstances. Has he been murdered, and if so who would want to kill the worlds most famous philanthropist? Could such an upstanding man have enemies?

Vivienne Trent, an American journalist, met Locke as a child, married him, divorced him, but stayed close to him. Aware that there was another side to this enigmatic man, she sets out to find the truth about his death and about Locke himself.

‘Few novelists ate consummate as Barbara Taylor Bradford at keeping the reader turning the page. She is one of the world's best at spinning yarns.’
