"Inheritance is a sweeping, panoramic, novel set in Britain between the 1930s and the present day. It is the story of Frank Cole, born to a strangely split inheritance: privately educated, the son of a woman from a rich and well-connected family who had forsaken her background to work as a midwife in a poor part of South London. Cole's crusading political career takes him leftwards politically - to a covert career as one of Mosley's Blackshirts, then to Spain and finally after the war to a political career in the Labour party. But at the heart of his character is a mystery which is suddenly revealed as the story unfolds."
