The Proprietor’s Daughter

By Lewis Orde

From the author of Dreams of Gold and Eagles comes a story of love, heartbreak, vengeance and political intrigue set against the backdrop of 1970s London.

Katherine Kassler has it all, a loving husband, two small children and a reputation as a crusading journalist for London’s Daily Eagle, the newspaper owned by her father. But when a hideous riding accident robs Katherine of her husband, her perfect world is shattered.

Lifelines are thrown to Katherine from unexpected sources. John Saxon, a handsome, charming real-estate magnate once pilloried by Katherine in the Eagle, resurfaces to help her through the ordeal. Then Raymond Barnhill, a brash London-based American journalist, takes an ever-increasing interest in her life. And finally, a reporting assignment on violence among young soccer fans takes Katherine on a frightening journey into ambition and corruption at the highest levels, and treachery that threatens the nation’s welfare.

How Katherine resolves her personal dilemmas and exposes those who would destroy the people and values she cherishes provides the climax to this satisfying and unforgettable story.

Lewis Orde is the author of eight previous novels, including the highly acclaimed EaglesMunich 10Heritage, and The Lion’s Way. Born in Great Britain, he now makes his home in Durham, North Carolina.
