Why do intelligent, educated, successful people risk it all for a moment's madness? This absorbing book tells the stories of 28 politicians, artists, religious leaders and businessmen tarnished by a hunger for sex, money or power: Catherine the Great, the Marquis de Sade, Edward VIII, John Profumo, Jeremy Thorpe, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Swaggart, Bill Clinton... Whatever the motive, one factor links these diverse tales of deception, disclosure and disgrace: everyone thinks they'll get away with it - until they're caught.
