Scornful Moon

Author(s): Maurice Gee


Wellington, 1936. James Tinling, a former cabinet minister, plans apolitical comeback, and although a brash newcomer stands in his way, James has methods of dealing with people who stand up to him. Eric Clifton has secrets too: he lives hot-bloodedly and is at war with patrician James. Sam Holloway records their year with its sexual intrigues, sudden violence and the overturning of the political norms. What role does the young poet Owen Moody play? And what about Lily Maxey; and James's daughter, Charlotte? A reprint of Maurice Gee's latest novel about politics and personal secrets.
