Seduced at the age of fourteen by her foster father-cum-priest, Heidi Gaynor roamed the Docklands of London and wound up at a ch‚teau in France. Now she is almost seventeen and ready for a decent livelihood, but isnít aware an opportunity can reduce her to a vulgar necessity. When her new masterís wife, Katherine, is troubled if she really saw her billionaire husband in bed with their daughter, the rich man erupts. In her investigations, Katherine undergoes a ìpost mortemî. The billionaire must cover his back before secrets traceable to Gregory Rasputin consume his family. Regis is the billionaireís vagrant nephew, a disillusioned graduate on a quest to unknot a crime that crippled his student-nurse fiancÈe. He thinks he must rob a bank and play a role prophesied when he was in his boyhood. Glittering Gallows is mainly set in France, South Africa and Australia.
