Summary
It's the glittering eighties and Lucinda Cowper, Elizabeth Beaumont and Flora Fielding feel happy and secure in the power and pleasure of wealth. Nothing could have prepared them for a devastating financial scandal, which turns the boom to bust. For these women and their families it isn't just a case of losing the luxuries and the lifestyle. The crash takes away their hope, their self-respect and, for some, it destroys even more. Facing bleak futures, affairs being, lies are spun, relationships pushed to breaking point, and within the year someone will be dead. But who? And why?
