    Gerard Lee Bevan was an Edwardian swell, arrogant, well-connected and highly cultured. He married into money and influence, and kept a succession of showgirl mistresses. But Bevan's success was built on deception and in 1922 he could sustain it no longer. He fled, leaving his family and his stockbroking and insurance empire in ruins. Weyer's biography offers a vivid picture of this blue-blooded rogue -the man behind the 'City Scandal' of the 1920s.
