TONY DRURY BOOK LAUNCH SUPPORTS HEART UK-
THE NATION’S CHOLESTEROL CHARITY
Acclaimed novelist and city financier Tony Drury will be hosting a launch party for his third book ‘Cholesterol’ at Davy’s Wine Bar, High Holborn, London this Wednesday 10th July. City colleagues, friends and family will be treated to an exclusive performance by the stunning and talented singer/songwriter Rebecca Bains. Tony Drury and City Fiction are proud to support Heart UK.
Adrian Dexter, a corporate financier is struggling through the turbulence of recession in 2012. Far away from the City of London, the love of his life waits for him in Johannesburg – as does his mortal enemy and notorious South African gangster, Nigel de Groot. When Adrian meets the beautiful Helen Greenwood they embark on a passionate affair. But his newfound happiness is about to be rudely interrupted…a business merger, an unexpected pregnancy, a kidnapping and a royal ambush. Adrian’s life is spiralling out of control. Can he get a grip before it’s too late?
Tony’s first novel ‘Megan’s Game’, inspired by his experiences in the City and the people he met during his long career, received stellar reviews from critics and readers around the country;

‘Megan’s Game – the film’ produced by Paul Tucker with a screen play by award winning Art Director Crispian Sallis, is due to premier in 2014.
In advance of the launch Tony said, ‘I am very much looking forward to Wednesday evening. Davy’s are sure to deliver an excellent party and we are privileged to have the very lovely Rebecca perform; everyone will be blown away by her talent. I am also pleased to partner with our nominated charity Heart UK – the work they do raising awareness and supporting health professionals is vital. I am confident the event will be a success.’
Half of all heart attacks are caused by raised cholesterol; 6 in 10 adults in the UK have raised cholesterol and every 6 minutes in the UK someone dies from a heart attack. Heart UK is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people with raised cholesterol and other blood fats and also supporting healthcare professionals treating these conditions. The charity aims to prevent avoidable and early deaths caused by high cholesterol by lobbying for better detection of those at risk and supporting health professional training.
