A crisis in the Trevelyan-Tubal clan is not just a family affair. Harry Trevelyan-Tubal, the head of London’s most exclusive private bank, is slowly dying in the south of France. Fleur, Harry’s younger wife, is already planning for widowhood by flirting with her personal trainer and calculating her inheritance. Harry’s son, Julian, has taken over Tubal and Co., but he is desperate to sell it and escape the family legacy. Julian’s hedge fund investments have nearly sunk the bank, and he tries to prop it up with secret transfers from the family trust.

A young reporter at the Cornish Globe and Mail, Melissa Tregarthen, unexpectedly stumbles upon this financial conspiracy. Fleur’s ex-husband, the idealistic playwright Artair MacCleod, is one of Cornwall’s faded literary stars, and Artair’s grants from the Tubal family trust have mysteriously dried up. As Melissa tracks down MacCleod’s story and posts it on her blog, Julian must act quickly to save Tubal and Co. from exposure. But as these bankers, artists, and reporters pursue their dreams, it’s unclear who is in the right and who is in the wrong as Tubal and Co.’s days begin to dwindle.
