For amiable city trader Jimmy Corby, money was the new rock n' roll. His whole life was a party, adrenaline charged and cocaine fuelled. If he hadn't met Monica, he would probably have ended up either dead or in rehab. But Jimmy was as lucky in love as he was at betting on dodgy derivatives, so instead of burning out, his star just burned brighter than ever.
Rich, pampered and successful; Jimmy; Monica; and their friends lived the dream, bringing up their children with an army of domestic helps. But then it all came crashing down. And when the global financial crisis hit, Jimmy discovered that anyone can handle success. It's how you handle failure that really matters.

sorry to say but this is not the best. sounded off the top of his head.
"Unmistakably Ben Elton"
Political satire wrapped up in a great story. The Ben Elton comic genius comes through, mixed with the political rants that made him famous in the 1980's.
if you like ben elton then you'll definitely like this tale. some very amusing parts. loved the way all the smallest details became relevant later in the story
