Description

In 1866, tragedy strikes the exclusive Windfield School when a young student drowns in a mysterious accident. His death and its aftermath initiate a spiraling circle of treachery that will span three decades and entwine many lives.
 
From the exclusive men’s clubs and brothels that cater to every dark desire of London’s upper class to the dazzling ballrooms and mahogany-paneled suites of the manipulators of the world’s wealth, one family is splintered by a shared legacy. But greed, fed by the shocking truth of a boy’s death, must be stopped, or the dreams of a nation will die.

Truly talented

I read this book many years ago and it was truly intriguing. Loved every chapter.

Great story!

I always love Mr. Follet's strong characters and detailed descriptions of life in the era he's describing, and this book was no exception. My only regret is that I'm running out of Follet books to read.
