On the surface the De Vere family appear to have it all. Wealth, political power and idyllic life split between their London mansion, Oxfordshire country house and their idyllic, sprawling Martha's Vineyard estate. But beneath the gilded facade and the family's apparently watertight bonds with one another, lie many secrets, some of them deadly. When the mistakes of youth refuse to stay buried and generation old hatreds resurface, the De Veres find themselves on the brink of losing everything. How far will each of them go to conceal the truth and protect the family?

    

Two young management graduates, with nothing similar in family backgrounds and temperament, join the New York International Bank on the same day and take two entirely different routes to success. Both rise up the ranks at breakneck speed, the fast and aggressive Sundeep, who will stoop to anything to get ahead and the mature and sensible Swami, with a high regard for good old ethics. The racy narrative set in the high pressure milieu of competitive banking carries the undercurrent of a clash of values, in the intermeshed realms of the personal and the professional. This is a story peppered with ambition and frustration, deceit and malevolence, love and lust, and the desperate struggle for status and power. And, above all, there is a top notch banker who plays the benevolent God whenever crises loom over the young guns. An insider's fictionalized account of how Indian professionals experience the world of foreign banks, the story spans three continents.
