    Description"Political and amorous intrigues, cold-blooded murders and financial crises...old-fashioned entertainment!" -- "San Francisco Chronicle." In 1866, tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School. A young student drowns in a mysterious accident involving a small circle of boys. The drowning and its aftermath initiates a spiraling circle of treachery that will span three decades and entwine many loves. . . From the exclusive men's club and brothels that cater to every dark desire of London's upper classes to the dazzling ballrooms and mahogany-paneled suites of the manipulators of the world's wealth, Ken Follett conjures up a stunning array of contrasts. This breathtaking novel portrays a family splintered by lust, bound by a shared legacy. . . men and women swept toward a perilous climax where greed, fed by the shocking truth of a boy's death, must be stopped, or not just one man's dreams, but those of a nation, will die. . . "Breathlessly plotted. . . relentlessly suspensenseful." -- "The New York Times." "Gripping, complex plot . . sexual intrigue. . . fascinating characters. . . you won't be able to put down this exciting page-turner!" -- "Lexington Herald-Leader."

    Jasmine My dad gave me this book to read, I hate getting recommendations from people because more often than not it's not worth my time following it up. He was adamant I read it and I did, I absolutely fell in love with it!!

    This story broke my heart... it also made me absolutely infuriated as well. The characters are unforgettable, the plot twists are beautifully executed and I could have imagined a smoother way to end a novel.

    A battle between bloodlines, a fight for power among deviousness and malice, this book is a wonderfully engrossing novel

    would highly recommend to those mature and non-squimish people :D by Jasmine
