From the author of Friends, Lovers and Other Indiscretions comes a keenly observed, often comical chronicle of the urban wealthy elite, of parents who are often too busy to notice what is going on under their own noses, of children left to their own devices, and of a young nanny thrown into a role she doesn’t know how to play.

  • “After an uberwealthy London family gets embroiled in a financial scandal following the 2008 crash, the trusted babysitter is the one holding all the secrets. Neill’s engrossing and funny novel lives up to the titillating title.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pat Lampe | 2/18/2014

    " I enjoyed this book very much though it was a slog getting started. I always like stories about the very rich and those who deal with them. The plot was well done, entwining the fiscal crisis and the family crisis. Interesting to learn something about nannies too. Overall, once I got into it, I had a hard time putting it down. Always wondering till the very last what the nanny did see. "

    " I listened to the Tantor media audio edition of this book. I received it as a gift from the publisher. I enjoyed it a lot. Very good narrator. Very timely plot. Interesting look inside the lives of the rich and super rich. I enjoyed the characters. They were very full and felt very real. Good solid book. Wonderful audio presentation. "

    " This book was an OK read, though the main character Ali was not very believable and I felt the author was using the characters in her own way, rather than staying true to them as "individuals" if that makes sense. It was one of those books that you kind of feel you have read before as it has many cliches, but its an OK "switch your brain off" type of read. However, I have to say that whilst I am not a prude, I do hate the use of the "c" word (the 4 letter one!) in a book, and it lent nothing to this book to use it more than once - like the author was just putting it in for the sake of it, which was disappointing and unnecessary. "

    " Couldn't get interested in this book and finally gave up and quit reading it. "
