Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From crime fiction's reigning queen comes a diabolically intricate tale that weaves together the lives of very different people in a vibrant part of London known as Portobello. Walking to the shops of Notting Hill one day, fifty-year-old art gallery owner Eugene Wren discovers an envelope on the street bulging with cash. Instead of going to the police or keeping the money for himself, Wren hatches a plan to find the money's rightful owner. He composes a notice and posts it on a lamppost near his home. This seemingly harmless act creates a chain of events that links Wren to some unsavory characters, upsetting not only his life but that of his fiancee — and it delivers consequences that will change them all.
