From the cover: “The Bannerman Fortune is legendary: the Bannerman family lives in its own secret world of unimaginable wealth and power: thus, when the head of the family, Arthur Bannerman, dies in the bed of Alexa Walden, a beautiful woman young enough to be his granddaughter, the scandal makes headline news — and pits Alexa against the ruthlessness of the Bannerman family as they vie to retain control of the fortune — for Arthur had married the beautiful Alexa the day before he died. A mesmerizing novel of love and intrigue, about a fascinating young woman and a great American family, set against a brilliantly created and richly imagined background of private wealth and public power.”
