Here, for the first time, is the inside story of the Clermont Set five friends who became the most stylish and exclusive gamblers in 1960s London: the Clermont Clubs eccentric founder John Aspinall; Dominick Elwes, who was to betray the sets code of silence; socialite owner of Annabels, Mark Birley; flamboyant playboy James Goldsmith and the infamous Lord Lucky Lucan.

The charisma, charm and wit of these dastardly but debonair millionaires made them invincible in their own eyes, but John Pearson shows how their code would lead to tragedy and to one of the great unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century the disappearance of Lord Lucan.
