From Mark Mills, author of the award-winning THE SAVAGE GARDEN comes THE LONG SHADOW, a first-class thriller in the vein of Robert Harris and William Boyd.
Blood brothers or sworn enemies? You never forget what the fight was about...THE LONG SHADOW is a stunning depiction of resentment and revenge. Ben Makepeace has barely thought of Jacob since school.
What he remembers is a competitive, manipulative boy, impinging on his life.
Now Ben is the wrong side of forty with a young son to support and in need of a backer.
A call to meet hedge-fund billionaire Victor Sheldon is promising, but there's a surprise in store - Victor is Jacob, now firmly entrenched in a gilded world of riches and glamour.
History can cast a long shadow and while Ben believes his childhood is well over, he soon discovers the roots of the past dig deep.
