A gripping, satirical and acutely observed story of our time.
The Trevelyan family is in grave trouble. Their private bank of Tubal + Co. is in on the verge of collapsing. It's not the first time in its three-hundred-and-forty year history, but it may be the last. A sale is under way, and a number of important facts need to be kept hidden, not only from the public, but also from Julian Trevelyan-Tuba's deeply traditional father, Sir Harry, who is incapacitated in the family villa in Antibes. Great families, great fortunes and even greater secrets collide in this gripping, satirical and acutely observed story of our time.
'a beguiling, breakneck near-thriller, elegantly and engagingly threaded, but with a big splash of high and mighty literary reality and true emotional intensity...a supple and engrossing yarn about markets gone mad and men gone bad, which should hold the attention of every kind of reader. The characters leap off the page effortlessly realised, the dialogue crackles, the plot rivets even as it swerves.' Australian
'funny, astute and light-footed' Canberra Times
