 He bought the private island of Mustique in the West Indies and made it one of the most exclusive destinations for the famous—royalty, film and pop stars, international businessmen and jet-setters flocked there.  His parties were legendary.  He was an original member of the Princess Margaret set (even suggested as a possible husband) and her visits to the island were always newsworthy. As Tennants literary executer, Nicholas Courtney personally knew his subject and had access to unseen family papers and photographs.  He tells the inside story of Tennants remarkable and often tragic life which continues to cause ripples even after his death.
