 ‘Currency is a fleeting convenience, whereas power is truly invaluable.’ A cold smile crossed Pandini’s face. ‘Only the foolish and the greedy settle for money alone.’

 

Pandini
Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Astor are renowned names synonymous with immense wealth in the opulent era of 1920s America. Yet, in their shadow, an enigmatic figure, Pandini, forged his empire.

Having established a successful law firm, he diversified into engineering, banking, and oil, amassing a staggering fortune. His preference for discretion rendered him virtually unseen by the public eye, with his name curiously absent from official annals. Rumours of his connections with underworld luminaries, including Capone and ‘Lucky’ Luciano, persisted, though no tangible proof ever came to light.

He met Liliana, the heiress to a formidable legacy and a member of the esteemed Pandini lineage, a family whose distinguished banking history, traceable back to 15th-century Italy, rivalled even that of the illustrious Medicis when his law firm undertook her defence in a contentious legal dispute. Members of the Pandini family had contested the will of her late parents, alleging that Liliana was responsible for the fire that claimed their lives. Succumbing to Liliana’s allure and fascinated by her family’s rich history, they were wed within a year.  He embraced not only her esteemed surname but also her venerable legacy and the magnificent wealth of the Pandini family, who were avid collectors.

Five years after their marriage, Liliana was discovered lifeless at their Hamptons estate. Although the official verdict was accidental death, murmurs of foul play persisted.
