New Fiction from PENNY VINCENZI

This is a terrific year for Penny Vincenzi fans. In June, Doubleday is bringing out An Absolute Scandal, another blockbuster novel set in the boom-and-bust years of the 1980s. And in October, Overlook will publish An Outrageous Affair, a mesmerizing page-turner that will delight new and old fans alike.
A mysterious, tragic accident in the 1950s; an inexplicable suicide twenty years later. What was the strange link between the two - and Caroline Hunterton's long-buried past? A secret which could not be kept for ever, especially from her two daughters, Chloe and Fleur. Fate had separated the sisters in time and distance - but bound them in mutual hatred - until journalist Magnus Phillips decided to tell the story that would tear their lives apart. Moving from wartime Suffolk to fifties Hollywood, from glitzy Madison Avenue to London's theatrical aristocracy and the machinations of cheque-book publishing, An Outrageous Affair explores the extraordinary, sometimes fatal, consequences of truth. Penny Vincenzi's electrifying novel An Outrageous Affair will be available in bookstores in October 2008.
