He grows to adulthood streetwise and savvy - and deeply attached to his beautiful, brilliant cousin Rosie Beck with whom he has an almost telepathic empathy. But neither Dennis nor Rosie can foresee the inexorable rise of John Barbican Begg, the financial genius and unscrupulous schemer who, despite their resistance, latches lamprey-like onto their lives. As Dennis pursues a dual career as underground rock guitarist and intrepid photojournalist while Rosie devotes her intelligence and energies to helping the poor of the world, Barbican builds a commercial empire whose unprecedented wealth and power dwarfs that of most nation states." "Rosie, Dennis and Barbican follow their different paths, drawing towards a spectacular joint resolution of their destinies at one of the most historic nodal points of the Old World."--Jacket."@en ;
