The third Ben London novel
Right from the start of the first Ben London, London's Child, we knew that Ben London (an illegitimate baby born in a cemetery, left on the steps of the East End's London Hospital) was a man who believes in the redeeming power of love. Even as a child with the hardest of hard upbringings he believed in love. Now he's a millionaire he's no softie; he knows from hard experience love is never easy. The women in his life get to know it too. Maybe that accounts for some of the enduring popularity of Ben's personality - he's an enigma, but one that can be solved. Most of all, he's a man. In this book Ben's childhood alter ego the gangster Vic Price (also strangely attractive) is at his most vile, having raped his own sister (whom Ben loves) and now, having blinded Ben in a bomb blast, kidnapped the girl he believes is his daughter by her. But as always with Ben London, nothing is ever what it seems . . . My favourite scene is the chase where the chauffeur drives his pride and joy, the gorgeous 1930s Rolls-Royce, into the Thames mud to try to save Ben's daughter.
Philip Boast lives in Devon with his wife Rosalind and three children, Harry, Zoe and Jamie.
