How would you feel if your ex-PA wrote a 'tell all' book, exposing your family's most shameful secrets? If your public turned against you and the press reviled you? If your phones were tapped, your car was followed and your house was under siege - where would you run to? Who would you turn to if all your friends dropped you and you needed refuge? The Spenders, once Britain's favourite family, have suffered all this and more.

In fact things are about to get a whole lot scarier… The gripping sequel to Dead Rich.

Then, at a moment of dreadful despair, she is given protection by lovely, wealthy Llinos Mainwaring, and goes to live with her at the famous pottery in Swansea.
