Book jacket/back: This novel was conceived in the heated and controversial politics of Britain at the turn of the century. Arthur Granger, an aristocratic and unsuccessful novelist, betrays the ideals he prides himself on for the unrequited love of a young woman. And no ordinary woman, she, but an ethereal, goddess-like, nameless agent from a strange world.

The Inheritors is a quasi-science fiction novel about the transition of British society from the old, aristocratic mould to a land of industry and advancement. A young writer comes into contact with the inheritors, people from the "fourth dimension" who plan to take over the world. He experiences the same shift as society within himself, only to be left feeling that he has lost everything.
