Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey Archer is at his captivating best in this, his first novel, an intricate tale of deceit, dishonor, and sweet revenge. What can an Oxford don, a respected society physician, a chic French art dealer, and a charming English lord have in common? Very little, except they've all been swindled out of every cent they had by Harvey Metcalfe, the man who wrote the book on international stock fraud. They haven't a prayer of ever seeing their money again. Or have they?

Convoluted schemes and name brand dropping

I like revenge stories and had particularly enjoyed Archer's A Prisoner of Birth, but this was very disappointing. So much of it was just name brand dropping in a way that had little or nothing to do with the plot. Some of the Amazon reviews said that the plot was "unbelievable" or "too coincidental" but I expected that, since typically a revenge novel is meant to be a bit over the top. However, nobody hit on the right description: "unnecessarily convoluted;" full of complicated schemes that would make sense in a caper movie but not when you are listening to them, particularly because of the great deal of padding. Not completely awful, some fun parts, but you might want a hard copy for a skim- through beach read instead of an audible version.
