A Dangerous Fortune

by Follett, Ken

It’s 1866, and a tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School when a young student drowns in a mysterious accident involving a small circle of boys. The aftermath spirals into a circle of treachery that will span three decades. 

Exclusive men's club and brothels that cater to desires of London's upper class, dazzling ballrooms and mahogany-paneled suites, Ken Follett creates a striking array of contrasts. This novel shows a family splintered by lust, bound by a shared legacy, and swept towards greed, all fed by the truth of the young boy’s death.
