Dust cover Endorsement:

When ex-Wren Officer and ex-ski racer Linda Scott changes career and begins working for financial consultant Barbara Schofield she has only one object in life, to become fabulously wealthy. She finds wealth, power, prestige and status by feminine wiles and ruthless opportunism.

One thing mars the two women’s relationship; they both secretly love the same married man, Lucius Hunter. Dark haired, green-eyed Barbara succeeds in luring him into a love triangle, but the affair becomes complicated when the two girls meet two businessmen in London and begin casual affairs with them. One turns out to be Lucius’s father, a man carrying on a long-term affair with his son’s wife.

During attempts by their employer, entrepreneur Moris Dickey, to take-over the Fidelity Mutual Assurance Company, Barbara and Linda find themselves making the rules in a male dominated business.

Barbara is not able to twist the emotional rules quite as easily as the financial ones however, especially when some holiday romance indiscretions threaten tentative relationships. When Lucius Hunter refuses to leave his wife she threatens to marry his father, a move that brings tragedy and happiness.

Once he succeeds in taking over the insurance company, Moris Dickey, with his south London underworld connections, is caught laundering criminal money through the company accounts and is forced to resign leaving Barbara and Linda to take advantage of the resulting confusion.
