Julius Levy sacrifices everything to a ruthless ambition. After adventures in Europe and Africa he reaches England, where his ambition is quickly realised. As he claws his way to wealth, he cares for no one until his daughter is born, who inspires dark passions in her father that will destroy them both.
A terrifying tale of a narcissistic personality. Absorbingly drawn (as if Du Maurier knows the character and those around him), Julius is the sort of person you don't really want to know...
