Publisher's Summary

It is the 1980s and the Winshaw family are getting richer and crueller by the year. Newspaper-columnist Hilary gets thousands for telling it like it isn’t; Henry’s turning hospitals into car-parks; Roddy’s selling art in return for sex; down on the farm, Dorothy’s squeezing every last pound from her livestock; Thomas is making a killing on the stock exchange; and Mark is selling arms to dictators.
But when their hapless biographer Michael Owen starts investigating the family’s trail of greed, corruption, and immoral doings, the time is ripe for the Winshaws to receive their comeuppance.

A triumph

A glorious juxtoposition of emotion, humour, and inciteful social comment. I immediately raced out and downloaded everyone of his books. My career as a writer is ended. If I cant entertain like this guy ...... Im going back to the salt mines.

Chapter missing!

Overall, the narrator did a really good job mimicking different voices.
The first part of Dorothy's chapter is missing though!
