Glittering Gallows

Tuesday 5 March 2013, author(s)-editor(s) Basil Diki

Seduced at the age of fourteen by her foster father-cum-priest, Heidi Gaynor roamed the Docklands of London and wound up at a château in France. Now she is almost seventeen and ready for a decent livelihood, but isn’t aware an opportunity can reduce her to a vulgar necessity. When her new master’s wife, Katherine, is troubled if she really saw her billionaire husband in bed with their daughter, the rich man erupts. In her investigations, Katherine undergoes a “post mortem”. The billionaire must cover his back before secrets traceable to Gregory Rasputin consume his family. Regis is the billionaire’s vagrant nephew, a disillusioned graduate on a quest to unknot a crime that crippled his student-nurse fiancée. He thinks he must rob a bank and play a role prophesied when he was in his boyhood. Glittering Gallows is mainly set in France, South Africa and Australia.
