BAGLEY, Desmond. Windfall. London : Collins, 1982. First Edition. Pp (6),7-320. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. Desmond Bagley (1923-1983), was a British journalist and novelist principally known for a series of best-selling thrillers. "Jan Willem Hendrykxx's legacy amounted to a staggering £40 million; £34 million to go to an agricultural college in Kenya's Rift Valley, and the remaining £6 million to be divided equally between the mysterious benefactor's only discovered living descendants: Dirk Hendriks, a South African, and Henry Hendrix, a young drop-out living in California. "Max Stafford, head of Stafford Secrity Consultants in London, gets involved in the ensuing events for two reasons: one is that Dirk Hendriks happens to be the husband of a dear friend; the other is the sudden disappearance in London of Ben Hardin, an American detective, whose account of his assignment to track down Henry Hendrix and deliver him to his recent employer arrouses Stafford's suspicion. The trail leads to Kenya and the obscure agricultural college at Ol Njorowa which has benefitted from old Hendrykxx's millions. What is the source of those millions? [...] another of his inimitable thrillers, but he also produced a thoughtful novel about present-day Kenya;a novel of insight and humour that explores the intricate relationships of the Africans, Asians and Europeans who live and work there, and share a co mmon love of their country." - from the dj flap.

The second novel by British author Bailey, (born February 16, 1937). "Trespasses is the almost unbearably moving account of a young man's discovery of his own humanity and the casaltiesof his course. In vivid fragm of memory-images, dialogues, dreams, letters , Ralph Hicks assembles his ghosts: a mother too limited to hold the affection of husband or son; a father remote and, therefore, loved; the prohibited Miss Potter; his lunatic cousin Harry; Bernard, the homosexual; the crusading wife, whose devotion Ralph rejects with tragic consequences. Ralph's is an anguished progress from the dark of his soul to the house with apple blossoms under a bright sky and the release of confession. Paul Bailey's illumination of character from within and the exquisite exactness of his writing mark him as one of the most important young novelists to emerge in this decade." (from the dj).
