Moment of Madness
An irresistible epic of love, riches and family secrets
By Una-Mary Parker
Una-Mary Parker takes readers on a non-stop tour of the spectacularly rich and secretive Scott-Forbes family in Moment of Madness
Her father may be dead, but he's still playing games...
When Lucinda's father suddenly dies, she must complete a mysterious treasure hunt to earn her inheritance. On the journey to a vast fortune, Lucinda finds out more about her father than she ever knew when he was alive. Una-Mary Parker's unputdownable Moment of Madness is perfect for fans of Penny Vincenzi and Tasmina Perry.
When the eccentric genius Professor Miles Scott-Forbes suddenly dies, Lucinda, the daughter he ignored all his life, finds she must enter a bizarre treasure hunt before she can claim a penny of her inheritance.
At the centre of the mystery lie six pieces of jewellery, each one inextricably linked to a shocking family secret. Five pieces must be disposed of - the sixth Lucinda can keep for herself. Should it be the most valuable of the six, she stands to inherit a vast fortune, which will enable her to give up her stressful job and spend more time with her two children.
But there's a catch: Lucinda's forbidden to have the jewellery valued. Furious to be the object of yet another of her father's twisted games, she reluctantly follows the trail... only to realise that the true prize lies not in financial gain but in the discovery of the man behind her father's cruel and capricious exterior.
