Indulge in the stunning story of one woman escaping her past from the No. 1 bestselling author of Grown Ups

‘Zips along with engaging characters, fabulous plotting and spot-on dialogue. Marian Keyes: what a genius’ DAILY MAIL

‘I have a habit of taking instant dislikes to people. Simply because it saves time . . .’

Wasp-tongued private investigator Helen Walsh doesn’t believe in love, fear or hot drinks.

But when a missing persons case takes her into the dark, glamorous world of her dodgy ex, Jay Parker, she is drawn away from Artie Devlin, her distinctly unglamorous detective boyfriend.

And this isn’t good news.

For Jay’s fame-hungry world is one of smoke and mirrors and Helen is no longer sure what she’s doing or quite why she’s doing it . . .

To save herself from black doubt she’ll have to start believing in something – fast.

But will it be fear, or love?

‘A brilliant, unusual, brave, sexy, book . . . will confirm Keyes’s place as one of our finest writers’
