Pick Any Title
by Russell James
In this black comedy ‘Lord Clive’ inveigles Jane Strachey into helping him sell British ‘Lord of the Manor’ titles to Americans. Among his gulls are a shrewd businessman, a hell-fire preacher and a New York gangster. When lawyers pounce and guns start to fire, Strachey finds she need more than good looks and smart words to save her skin. ‘A brilliant page-turner,’ said the Times.
