Born into a life of wealth and privilege just before the dawn of the twentieth century, Robert Norbury’s life became a self-indulgent train wreck of lies and murder as he determined to do whatever was necessary to keep the Pittman-Simons Corporation healthy and profitable. Is it still called murder if lies and deception are the only weapons used?
“Norbury’s Confession” is set against a backdrop of the American century, a kinescope of vignettes showing how the lives of the patrician Norbury family of New York eventually intersect with a hard working farm family from the American Midwest. Bill Lambie, a child of the depression and a battle-hardened frontline veteran of the Second World War, never even heard of Robert Norbury until a life defining moment reveals that this obdurate stranger held Bill’s very life in his hand.

Spanning the majority of the 20th century (and tracing the Norbury history back to 1815 Britain), the novel covers not just the history of asbestos use in the U.S., but World Wars I and II and accompanying social changes.
