The Scheme of Things

The Scheme of Things (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Pommy Freiberg is one of the last of the big city beasts; Chairman and CEO of a multi-national conglomerate that Pommy controls as a personal fiefdom. No-one knows better than Genevieve, Pommy's party-planning wife, the extent of his ruthless, unreconstructed cunning. So when things start to unravel with a pet project at the mighty Belston Corporation, Pommy does not hesitate to offer a sacrificial lamb to the City wolves; his devoted heir apparent Nick. Spat out, crumpled and used, Nick retreats to his dull regional hometown where a chance encounter with childhood love Alison sets them on a quest for vengeance. As Pommy fights a hostile takeover battle from London's latest business wunderkind, Nick and Alison make their own plans for revenge, pursued by Alison's abandoned husband Jonathan. All paths lead to London, and the union of all destinies at the social event of the year.
