Synopsis of this title

Pride: Gazing from his magnificent Chawbury Manor, Miles Straker has it all. A society wife who runs his home like clockwork, four gorgeous children, a smart stucco in West London and, most importantly of all, his multi-national PR business. Greed. Utterly ruthless in both business and pleasure, Miles is a man who gets what he wants in a heartbeat, with a web of power that can bring a company to its knees or get you splashed on every front page. Envy. When self-made millionaire Ross Clegg buys the land adjoining the Straker Chawbury estate, Miles is wreaked with jealousy. Not only are Ross and his family welcomed by the country elite, Ross's booming business means he's hailed as a hero of the people. Wrath. But Miles Straker is a dangerous enemy and he vows to take the Clegg empire apart piece by piece, starting with his obnoxious family Battle rages from the boardroom to the bedroom as old money takes on the new, and two families are plunged into a bitter feud. Packed with scandal, revenge and devilishly sharp observation, Nicholas Coleridge's new novel is a rollercoaster ride across generations and class, in a thrilling tale of two men locked in a deadly war.

Reviews of this title

quotes

'[A] fast fluent and beautifully observed novel ... I can't think of any writer today who captures social nuances more precisely, or with more deadly wit. ... [you] will whoop with joy over the final intricately plotted pages of this wickedly funny and utterly irresistible book.' (EVENING STANDARD )

'A triumph ... you'll never read 496 pages more quickly.' (THE OBSERVER )

'a hugely entertaining novel of low cunning and high farce ... Only an author in complete control of his material could pull off such a blissfully anarchic comedy of manners ... The pacing is immaculate, the social observation spot-on and Coleridge drip-feeds us with one splendid set-piece after another.' (TATLER )

'What better during a credit crunch than a tale of the super-rich sleeping their way around the country? Coleridge's escapist tale ticks every sin, from pride and greed to envy, wrath and, of course, lust. A right royal romp.' (GLAMOUR )
