Damian Baxter is hugely wealthy and dying. He lives alone in a big house in Surrey, England, looked after by a chauffeur, butler, cook, and housemaid. He has but one concern—his fortune in excess of five hundred million and who should inherit it on his death. Past Imperfect is the story of a quest. Damian Baxter wishes to know if he has a living heir. By the time he married in his late thirties he was sterile (the result of adult mumps), but what about before that unfortunate illness? Had he sired a child? He sets himself (and others) to the task of finding his heir.
“Deservedly compared to Tom Wolfe, Fellowes, with his ability to document the aristocracy with a sociologist’s eye, fashions intriguing narratives.”--Publishers Weekly
