Was it Pearl Friedel’s fault she was beautiful? If she had been plain, William Angell, the self-indulgent solicitor and lover of beautiful things, would never have given her the chance to escape the tedium of everyday life. It was a very satisfactory arrangement – until Little God stepped in. An ambitious boxer with a vicious reputation, he wanted Pearl for himself, no ...more

Pearl Fridell is a truly beautiful woman; yet is she also to blame for her beauty? All she knew was that the self-indulgent but successful solicitor, Wilfred Angell would never have looked at her twice if she had been plain. Mr. Angell was a self-described lover of beautiful things, and through her relationship with him, Pearl was exposed to a fashionable lifestyle that she otherwise never would have experienced had she stayed in the background for her entire life. It was quite a satisfactory ...more

Fat solicitor Wilfred Angell is very set in his ways. He is rather wealthy, an art collector. A bachelor, He loves to eat oysters, and has exact amounts of change in his wallet. All this is about to change when he meets Pearl on an aeroplane to Switzerland. Little does he know she already had an encounter with Godfrey, or "Little God" as he is known in the boxing world.
So begins a tale of treachery and revenge as Wilfred is drawn into the world of criminals - but is he really any better than the

This is not my review but the review from the book itself. It's a book I read years ago and need to read again.

Pearl Friedell is beautiful, and with that beauty comes problems. On one hand, William Angell is a self-indulgent solicitor and lover of beautiful things. On the other, Little God is an ambitious boxer with a vicious reputation. He wants Pearl for himself, no matter what the cost.
