Product Description

With over 3.5 million copies sold, Penny Vincenzi, is one of the world's preeminent writers of popular fiction. Her U.S. debut No Angel was praised by critics as having "the racy plots and period atmosphere to keep you firmly hooked satisfaction is guaranteed irresistible." (Washington Post Book World)

The dazzling Lytton twins, Adele and Venetia, grow up with the world at their feet. Born into the great Lytton publishing empire, they are rich and admired, with a confidence verging on arrogance. At eighteen, in 1928, their future seems assured but the specter of Nazi Germany is growing and, gradually, the twins' lives darken in unimaginable ways as they and their friends and family, including those in New York struggle to cope with circumstances for which their privileged world has not prepared them.

Something Dangerous is a riveting drama about an embattled dynasty, and a passionate, multi-layered tale of love and politics.

"Penny Vincenzi immerses the reader in a world of engrossing and unforgettable glamour and passion." Dominick Dunne

"A marvelously engrossing family saga perfect for curling up with on a rainy day. Or any day for that matter." Barbara Taylor Bradford

"Penny Vincenzi dazzlingly combines the old-fashioned virtues of gripping storytelling with the up-to-the-minute contemporary feel for emotional depth and insight into the lives of the characters." Elizabeth Buchan

Penny Vincenzi is the author of 7 books, including No Angel (available in paperback from Overlook), a main selection for the Literary Guild and a Book Sense 76 pick, and Into Temptation, (coming soon from Overlook). Find out more about Penny Vincenzi at www.penny-vincenzi.com.
