Description

‘One of the wittiest writers around’ Good Housekeeping ‘The perfect summer read: mischievous and delicious. I devoured it in one go.’ Miranda Cowley Heller, author of The Paper Palace

WHEN THE STAKES ARE HIGH, HOW LOW WILL YOU GO? Ayesha Scott has a perfect life. Home is an art-filled Cornish castle with her stratospherically wealthy, titled husband and their beloved daughter. But behind every realised dream lurks an unexploded nightmare and in the course of one day Ayesha discovers that she will be penniless, homeless and powerless unless she can outwit the international mafia, infiltrate the world of high finance and make backstreet deals with the shadiest members of the art world.

Hurt and betrayed, she’s determined to fight for herself and her daughter – but can she do it without enlisting the help of her beloved, deeply eccentric but estranged family?

Sharp escapist fiction, High Time is a novel about high stakes and high jinx set in the world of high art and high finance.

'Reads like a thrilling fairground ride version of Downton Abbey' Independent ‘An entertaining and arch caper’ Grazia Something Nancy Mitford and Jilly Cooper might have cooked up’ The Times
