An Absolute Scandal

An Absolute Scandal

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. Perfect for any reader of Kate Morton, Elizabeth Buchan or Harriet Evans.

‘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 Express

There’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.

Reviews

Praise for AN ABSOLUTE SCANDAL: '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'
<i>Daily Express</i>
'The bonkbuster is definitely on the rise again as fiction gets chunkier and glossier. But despite stiff competition from a new vanguard of younger and arguably hipper writers, there's one name that continues to reign supreme, Penny Vincenzi'
<i>Glamour</i>
'This is a big book and a terrifically entertaining one. It's also highly addictive'
