Ovington's Bank

'Ovington's Bank' is set in 1825 and was published in 1922 but - as the Financial Crisis of 2007 demonstrates - is as relevant today as it ever was.

The story follows a run on a private bank and is based on the British Panic that saw 70 banks fail. As the financial fallout lands, the gentry and the business classes scramble to save themselves, while being forced to examine their morals and motives.

This pacey narrative features a mugging, a stagecoach dash to London, a theft and a love affair. Who will be the winners and who will be the losers in this game of life?

This thrilling, nail-biting novel is perfect for fans of Wilkie Collins and Fergus Hume.

Stanley J. Weyman (1855–1928) was an English writer who wrote historical novels in particular. In his day, he was as popular as Charles Dickens and Rudyard Kipling. Many of his works are set in the 16th and 17th centuries. Weyman's best-known works include 'The Cardinal's Cause' and 'The True Nobleman'.
