From the Publisher
In 1866, tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield
School. A young student drowns in a mysterious accident
involving a small circle of boys. The drowning and its
aftermath initiates a spiraling circle of treachery that
will span 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...
