A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
FROM THE CREATOR OF DOWNTON ABBEY and BELGRAVIA

'A gloriously funny ride through modern times' Evening Standard

Damian Baxter is very, very rich. But he has but one concern, which is becoming more urgent at the weeks go by: who should inherit his fortune.

A letter from an ex-girlfriend suggests that, as a young man, Damian may have fathered a child, but the letter is anonymous.

Finding the truth will not be easy - and the only man who Damian can turn to for help also happens to be his sworn enemy...

“Lacks emotional depth”

The plot is well thought out and the insight into the shifting nature of the aristocracy is interesting, but I was never convinced by the nature of the love story and why the main character felt the way he did.
