A Dangerous Fortune

by Ken Follett

Epic in its scale, A Dangerous Fortune tells of the dramatic highs and lows of the wealthy Pilaster family from the bestselling author of The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follett. A Tragic Accident 1866: at an exclusive school in Victorian England, a schoolboy drowns in a mysterious accident. His death and its aftermath will have repercussions for decades to come . . . A Fierce Rivalry There on that fateful day were Hugh Pilaster and his older cousin Edward, heirs of a powerful banking dynasty with connections that reach from London to far-afield colonies. A Lethal Secret The cousins find themselves locked in a vicious competition for the top job at the bank. But the respectable veneer of the family, and even Victorian England itself, looks to shatter as the deadly event from their schooldays threatens everything the Pilasters have built.

About Author

Ken Follett

The international number one bestseller Ken Follett has published over 30 books in a career spanning more than 40 years. With global sales in excess of 170 million copies, his novels have been sold in over 80 countries and translated into 37 languages. Ken was just twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning thriller Eye of the Needle, which became an international success, but he surprised everyone in 1989 with The Pillars of the Earth. This story about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world, and was voted into the top 100 of Britain's best-loved books in the BBC's The Big Read. Married to Barbara Follett, the former Labour Member of Parliament for Stevenage, Ken and his family live in a rambling rectory in Hertfordshire and also spend time in London and Antigua. An ardent admirer of the theatre, Ken is often seen at productions of Shakespeare's plays when not indulging his passions for writing and playing bass guitar.
