Description
Thomas Sherwood is in trouble. A high-dollar financier, he's lost the bulk of his fortune in an international swindle, and his business partner has mysteriously disappeared from his fishing boat in the middle of the ocean. Sherwood retreats to the small farm in South Carolina he inherited from his grandfather. Hoping for a break from his new reality, he instead discovers his grandfather's handwritten memoir—and within it, a shocking family secret. Following the clues set forth in the memoir, Sherwood sets out for England to learn about his family's history. Seeking shelter from a blinding storm while driving along the English coast, Sherwood discovers a sprawling mansion owned by the Earl of Middlemarch, descendant of an ancient noble line. The earl's kind offer of lodging is gratefully accepted, but Sherwood quickly learns that he's not the only guest. Joey, a beautiful American girl, has sought shelter as well. And in her time at the house, she's discovered a cache of priceless paintings in a secret room. Together, Sherwood and Joey devise a plan to recover the stolen art. But when their plan goes awry, they find themselves scrambling to escape one of the world's richest and most dangerous men while running straight toward a crucial decision that will test their moral foundation. Robert Randolph's first novel is a thrilling page-turner about high finance, high living, and high crimes that will catch you in its grip and not let go.
