    Firstly, the tag-line on the front cover simply doesn’t do it justice. This story isn’t simply about a young up-start who wants the life and career of a successful TV producer - although that’s the way you’re lead to start with. The author then does what she does best, as the plot starts to twist and turn and the complexities of the characters’ motivations keep you guessing right until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this writer’s first novel ‘The Girlfriend’ and I absolutely loved this second book which delves even deeper into the foibles of the human condition and looks at what we’re prepared to do, under the most exceptional circumstances, to keep our head above water and claw back what is rightfully ours. 10 out of 10!! Looking forward to reading more by this author.
