An Absolute Scandal Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A searing portrait of wealthy living, and the highs - and lows - that come with it in a dazzling novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Penny Vincenzi. 'Buy on a Friday, get home, turn off the phone and emerge on Monday replete with a tale well told.

Guilty pleasures? We certainly all have them and this is better than most' - Daily ExpressThere's nothing like the contentment and security that money can bring.

That's how it is for Lucinda, Elizabeth and Flora, living the risk-free dream in the glittering eighties.

Houses, holidays, happiness - everything is there for the taking. The financial slide comes crashing into their lives with a vengeance, and everything they've built up so carefully dissolves into a pool of hopelessness, taking self-respect and relationships with it.

Now, the secrets will out and within a year, someone will be dead.
