John Aspinall, James Goldsmith and the Murder of Lord Lucan This is the inside story of the infamous Clermont Set: five friends who became the most stylish and exclusive gamblers in 1960s' London. They were the Clermont Club's eccentric founder John Aspinall; Dominic Elwes, who was to betray the set's code of silence; socialite owner of Annabel's, Mark Birley; flamboyant playboy James Goldsmith; and the infamous Lord 'Lucky' Lucan. The charisma 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 20th century - the disappearance of Lord Lucan.

The lack of human empathy that this clique invariably displayed is brought to frightening life in John Pearson's fascinating group portrait' - Tom Hewes Matthews, The Independent

' ... it reads like a galloping Mayfair noir thriller' - Christopher Hart, The Sunday Times
