Money. Sex. Power. Some things are always in fashion...Christine Fairbrother is a London barrister, specialising in high profile divorces.

Massimo 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 always wanted,but which could wreck her daughter's career.
