It is the 1980s and the Winshaw family are getting richer and crueller by the year. Newspaper-columnist Hilary gets thousands for telling it like it isn't; Henry's turning hospitals into car-parks; Roddy's selling art in return for sex; down on the farm, Dorothy's squeezing every last pound from her livestock; Thomas is making a killing on the stock exchange; and Mark is selling arms to dictators.

But when their hapless biographer Michael Owen starts investigating the family's trail of greed, corruption, and immoral doings, the time is ripe for the Winshaws to receive their comeuppance.

    " I really liked this book. I like the way numerous ideas interlink. A deliciously vile family depicting the worse aspects of Britain. An intriguing plot involving the notorious family and a dark history. The story culminates to an exciting climax. Very much recommended. "

    " I really enjoyed this book - full of interesting characters and some smart social commentary. The structure is pretty much perfect and the sequence in a hospital with no beds on New Year's Eve is extremely well observed and makes you feel angry and sad but also amused at the same time - quite a feat. Also features a cameo by Sid James which is worth at least a star. "
