Story is of a great love between a beautiful young woman and an older man. The older man is Arthur Aldon Bennerman, head of America's richest family, perennial condidate for the Republican presidential nomination, philanthropist and art collector on the grand scale. Thus, when Bannerman, at 64, dies in the bed of a young woman of 24, the scandal makes headline news--and soons pits Alexa Walden against the Bannerman family itself, for control of The Fortune.

NOTE: I have acquired many hardcover books from an estate that were signed/inscribed to a 'Tony Christy'. They are all from the late 1980's - early 1990's. It appears that he had a brother connected to the California scene, and acquired the signed books for him.
