This is the true story of a man who conned the elderly grandmother of his illegitimate son into lending him £25,000 for three months-which, with interest, grew over time to £60,000. Her only asset was a cottage which had been left to her as security for her old age. She was forced to sell this to pay off the man's debt, when he refused to repay her. When she learned that he has married into one of the richest and most influential families in the world, that of the Sultan of Brunei, she decided not to get angry, but to get even. This story is about the time it took her to try to get her money back through the courts, embassies, High Commissions, through her Member of Parliament, and the Home Office-all without success. When she has almost given up, she reads in a local newspaper about a man who has been successful in this type of work. Was he be able to help her, and at what cost? The book includes some interesting people from Brunei. These are Mariam Isa, daughter of Pehin Isa, Mariam's former husband, Ivica (Adam) Kalebic, owner of Fratini's restaurant, and Ivica's son, Alexander, by former actress and now lawyer Trudy McBride the ex-wife of Christopher Monger, the movie director and writer of the Liz & Dick, the movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor.
