Yes, it is the Tim Waterstone that started the biggest book chain in Britain and so he will no doubt come under a great deal of scrutiny but he doesn’t need to worry as he has written a great blockbuster novel. Interesting characters, intricate plots and plenty of dirty dealings. A gripping and clever read.

If you like Tim Waterstone you might also like to read books by Harry Bingham, Jeffrey Archer and Nicholas Coleridge.

Synopsis

In for a Penny, in for a Pound by Tim Waterstone

Thirty-something Hugh Emerson seems to have it all: a glamorous barrister wife and his own highly regarded publishing house. But Hugh is in serious financial trouble - and that's before his top-selling author gets involved in a tabloid scandal. Fortunately for Hugh, there's someone wealthy, generous and loyal enough to bail him out: Ned Macaulay, scion of a powerful newspaper dynasty and Hugh's best friend.

But Ned has problems of his own. The family firm is on the brink of bankruptcy, and to save it he must defeat the self serving sycophants at Waring's investment bank. Dragged into a world of devious bankers and blackmailing journalists, Hugh finds the modern media darker and dirtier than he ever imagined.

But with so much to lose, once he's in for a penny, he's in for a pound...
