LoveReading View on Almost a Crime

One of Vincenzi’s contemporary novels, set in the nineties as New Labour come to power. Octavia and Tom Flemming seem to have it all till Octavia discovers that Tom is having an affair and her life utterly falls apart. If you like the characters in the books you read to be likeable then maybe best to avoid this one as there’s barely a decent human being amongst the whole cast of their friends and families, but it’s thrillingly compelling to watch as their lives and marriage crumble.

Sarah Broadhurst

Almost a Crime Synopsis

Tom and Octavia Fleming have the perfect power marriage: he is a spin-doctor and she runs a consultancy to the charity industry. They are attractive, rich, successful...Then Octavia discovers Tom is having an affair and not only the discovery but the affair itself have consequences that are potentially fatal - both to the marriage and its power. For this is no ordinary affair, but one that leads to terror and danger, threatening other people, damaging other lives. Nothing and no one in the charmed circle in which the Flemings move can escape: not their children, not their friends, not even the one thing that seemed beyond reach - their own professional success.
