In 1866, tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School. A public school pupil drowns in a mysterious accident involving several boys. Among them are Hugh Pilaster, his cousin Edward - heir to the Pilaster fortune - and Micky Miranda, the son of a South American landowner. The death begins a sequence of treachery that lasts for three decades and entwine many loves.
From the exclusive men's club and brothels that cater to every dark desire of London's upper classes to the dazzling ballrooms and mahogany-paneled suites of the manipulators of the world's wealth, Ken Follett conjures up a stunning array of contrasts.
This breathtaking novel portrays a family splintered by lust, bound by a shared legacy... men and women swept toward a perilous climax where greed, fed by the shocking truth of a boy's death, must be stopped, or not just one man's dreams, but those of a nation, will die
