BOOK OF THE WEEK: One Enchanted Evening by Anton Du Beke
London, 1936. Inside the spectacular ballroom of the exclusive Buckingham Hotel the rich and powerful, politicians, film stars, even royalty, rub shoulders with the talented dancers from all around the world, who must enchant them, captivate them, and sweep away their cares.
From behind plush curtains and discreet doors, the unseen staff of the hotel dream and listen - and watch . . . The storm clouds of war are gathering, and beneath the glitz and glamour lurks a world of scandal and secrets. Let's dance . .
Anton Du Beke is one of the most instantly recognisable dancers today, best known for his role on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, a household name and all-round entertainer, known as Mr Debonair, Anton brings all the wit, charm and style he's famous for to this, his debut novel.
