In an attempt to salvage his desperate financial situation, Hertfordshire-based husband, father and entrepreneur Bill Smith goes into business with wealthy New York-based businessman Gerry Kiplock. He lives to regret it when Kiplock realises Bill has a mind of his own and decides to show him who is boss. He bulldozes Bill aside and monopolises the business to his own advantage.Finding himself in a corner with no apparent way out, Bill gets hopelessly drunk and tells his stunningly-beautiful wife Angela that he doesn't know which way to turn. Angela realises that unless she does something about it everything they have worked for will be lost, and she sets a trap for Kiplock in the way only a beautiful woman can.Cleverly written and leaving the reader realising that nothing was what it seemed, this is an excellent and thought-provoking read.
Despite this being Malcolm's second novel, this was the first I'd read of his and it's safe to say I wasn't disappointed!
The Kiplock Affair is a real page-turner.
Malcolm very clearly has a lot of insider knowledge when it comes to the business world - leaves you wondering about the author too!
Full of intrigue, betrayal, drama and obviously a lot of passion which really comes through in the writing. You really feel for the character Bill Smith too.
The ending was completely unexpected but I think the one we're all hoping for.
