Unlikely as it may seem, the Countess finds herself with cash to spare. Unlikelier still, she decides to do the sensible thing and invest it, caught up in London society's new craze for stocks and shares. Overnight, fortunes are being made, wealth amassed from nothing in a frenzy of speculation. And with these new-found riches anything can be bought: commodities, monkeys, even people. But as the Countess and Alpiew learn to their cost, investments can go down as well as up -- helped along by a little embezzlement from those bastions of respectability, bankers and brokers. 'Morgan's novels are a hoot, and packed to the hilt with parody, drama, luscious costumes and gruesome re-enactments. Morgan is adept in contrasting her characters with their surroundings and with each other. She brings dank, disease-ridden London vividly to life, with great humour. The Countess and Alpiew are comic creations of genius. Morgan's roller-coaster romp of a novel is a hard act to follow.' The Herald
