Readers of adventure novels, thrillers When Lucy inherits her father's millions, the best of everything that life can offer seems to beckon for her and her younger husband, Richard. Richard, however, who has not yet learned his trade as a stockbroker, is determined to prove his masculine credentials in the running of a small engineering firm that Lucy has added to an already bulging portfolio. Richard can hardly believe his luck when an export opportunity is presented to him by a group of Kenyan businessmen. He soon discovers, however, that the whole project is fraught with peril, though he could never have guessed the final outcome, and the strangely ambiguous position Lucy occupies at the centre of it all. But is she driven by love, or greed, or simply the naked egoism we more naturally think of when it comes to men in a business world? The answer is as surprising as it is intriguing.
