Sex, money and power, Robert Paget has them all. The sex appeal to know that he could seduce a nun if he wanted to, the cash to splash on designer suits, fast cars and exquisite dining, and a position at the top of an internationally successful advertising agency. But when he is suddenly fired by a jealous Chairman, Robert finds himself on unfamiliar ground: unemployed and determined on revenge.

With failure not even in his dictionary, Robert sets out on a breakneck campaign to find himself a new role. His adventures in business and bed take him from London to New York, into the cut-throat world of head-hunters and the arms of beautiful women. Sweeping along all those around him in his whirlwind bid for success, Robert transforms their lives as well as his own. Fun, sexy and sophisticated, Midas Man has it all.
