The New York Times bestselling author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
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.

Praise for Next of Kin

“One of the most imaginative and adventurous of the young Irish novelists working today.” —Irish Independent

“[A] well-plotted thriller . . . fans of Jacqueline Winspear and David Roberts will be well rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly

“A narrative pace that never flags for an instant, a solid cast of characters, a vividly imagined re-creation of a particular historical moment . . . if thrillers are to work they must be thrilling. And this is where Boyne scores highest of all.” —The Irish Times
