'A skilful prose stylist and a connoisseur of telling details' Guardian

Lawrence Leith has retreated from his once-successful career in TV to a small village in the south of France to mourn the end of his marriage and the loss of his job.

When his old colleague Martin Elliott arrives for a summer holiday, surrounded by his lovely family and new, influential friends, he seems to have everything that Lawrence lacks. Martin is convinced that Lawrence should get back in the game, even if that involves returning to Africa, where it once nearly ended for both of them.

As Martin's carefully cultivated image begins to slip, Lawrence recovers his urge to find out the real story - one which will force him to choose between his friend and his principles.

Masterfully constructed and universally topical, Conflicts of Interest is a novel about personal betrayal and political double-dealing, about the realities of being in the public eye and how the truth, no matter how hidden, will always out.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Provence setting, which I know well, is skilfully evoked, as are all the settings and relationships in this tense and engaging story * Literary Sofa *
Beautifully written and well-constructed, this is a fine book - thoroughly believable and yet shocking too * Country Life *
