Sarah Broadhurst's view...

What does silk mean to you? A glorious, sensual material? The fashion world? Or to “take silk”? i.e. the term for becoming a QC. This cleverly mixes the world of both fashion and law in a blockbuster novel where a high profile divorce case could possibly ruin the barrister’s daughter’s ambitions. It is glitz, glamorous, page-turning stuff with bite.

Comparison: Tasmina Perry, Penny Vincenzi, Tilly Bagshawe.

Synopsis

Silk by Rupert James

Money. Sex. Power. Some things are always in fashion…

Christine Fairbrother is a high-powered barrister, the scourge of the divorce courts. Christine has ambitions to become a QC – to “take silk” – after her next big case.

Her talented daughter, Isabelle Cissé, is a design graduate launching herself on the London fashion scene, full of dreams and ambitions – and with a fatal weakness for unsuitable men…

Victoria Crabtree loves fashion almost as much as she loves money. But her position as the mistress of Massimo Rivelli, multi-millionare owner of the House of Rivelli, one of the world’s leading manufacturer of couture fashion, is precarious. Massimo is very married, very Italian and very Catholic. He shows no sign of wanting to divorce his wife and Victoria’s always in danger of being replaced with a younger model. But he’s about to discover just what lengths Victoria will go to in order to survive…

Three women set on a collision course. Their lives and conflicting ambitions become tangled as Christine handles the divorce case that could give Victoria the man she’s wanted for her own for so long – but which could wreck her daughter’s blossoming career at the same time.
