Abstract:

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 Club's eccentric founder John Aspinall; Dominick Elwes, who was to betray the set's code of slience; socialite owner of Annabel's, 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.
