A Week in DecemberBook - 2009
This is a powerful contemporary novel set in London from the bestselling author of BIRDSONG, CHARLOTTE GRAY, and most recently ENGLEBY. The central anti-hero, John Veals, is a shadily successful and boundlessly ambitious Dickensian character who is trading billions. The tentacles of Veals' influence encompass newspaper columnists, MPs, business men, footballers, a female tube driver, a Scottish convert to Islam, a disaffected teenager, and a care worker, whose different perspectives build up a tale of woe, family and money as the story builds to its powerful climax.
