The shattering novel of one man swept away in the turmoil of emotional, financial and moral boom and bust. Charlie Wales is a young man who wants everything. Fresh from University, hes seduced by the excitement of a new life in London and all that it promises. Theres Vero, the beautiful French girl who might finally fall for him. Theres the lure of art, but also the promise of fast money in the City. And his friends, who are spiralling into a world of non-stop parties and unchecked greed. But as the choices begin to tear him apart, theres also the danger that all the things he desires are on the brink of crashing around him ...
