From the New York Times bestselling author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas comes John Boyne's Next of Kin

It is 1936, and London is abuzz with gossip about the affair between King Edward VIII and Mrs. Simpson. Owen Montignac, the handsome and charismatic scion of a wealthy family, is anxiously awaiting the reading of his late uncle's will. He must pay £50,000 worth of gambling debts by Christmas or he'll soon find himself six feet under. In his desperation, he discovers that the royal scandal could provide the means for profit . . . and for murder.
