**** Daily Mail review: "Seventies bankers are back with a vengeance"
Steel sets about her Rake’s Progress story with panache. Her hero, John, is a baby-faced banker initiated into the sharp practices of flogging dodgy loans to Latin American gangsters and dictators in the 1970s, ahead of the Eighties’ crash. ... Steel is the author of Wonderland, the Hampstead theatre’s previous hit about the miners’ strike. Once again she wears her research lightly, painting a rogues’ gallery of top-of-the-range spivs in a world of sex, drugs and sub-prime loans. ****
