Where there’s smoke . . .

. . . there’s usually an Insurance Agent hurrying to the scene to assess the damage. In Winston Graham's Fortune is a Woman, Oliver Branwell is sent to investigate a fire at Lowis Manor and finds that things are not all they seem at first glance – or second. In order to protect the woman he loves, Oliver is forced to side-step the rules. And as the suspense mounts, he discovers he has quite a few enemies – some of them intent on fanning the flames . . .

Exceptionally readable.


Winston Graham is one of the best half dozen novelists in this country.

Books and Bookmen

Each chapter is more tense than its predecessor . . . the writing is highly polished, and distinguished by a rare suavity.
