Character Bio

William Rackham photo
An egotistical perfume magnate who is loathed to join his father’s business, William is a failed writer and deeply in debt. His luxurious house in Notting Hill offers modest comfort for him, despite the strain of looking after his increasingly unstable wife.

Life holds little joy for William until friends Bodley and Ashwell point him towards Sugar, a notorious prostitute featured in ‘More Sprees in London’, a guide for the man about town. Learning about Sugar, William tracks her down and instantly falls under her spell.

As Sugar becomes increasingly integral to William’s success, it seems he will stop at nothing to keep her by his side. The ramifications of his affair will be profound.
