A “gothic love story gone wrong”. The Bettencourt Affair by Thomas Sanctan tells how a con artist got inside the L’Oreal fortune, and spilled dirt on their shadowy corporate doings. Before we Were Yours by Lisa Wingate is a novel based on a real-life scandal, in which the director of a Memphis-based adoption organization kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country. “Make sure this one is on your radar. It should not be missed” (Huffington Post).
