Description

Vice compounds vice in this fascinating satire of the unscrupulous Augustus Melmotte and his schemes to ensnare dissolute nobility.

In this world of bribes, vendettas, and swindling, in which heiresses are gambled and won, Trollope's characters embody all the vices: Lady Carbury is "false from head to foot"; her son Felix has "the instincts of a horse, not approaching the higher sympathies of a dog"; and Melmotte--the colossal figure who dominates the novel--is a "horrid, big, rich scoundrel...a bloated swindler...a vile city ruffian."

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.
