"Stella Duffy's writing gets better with each book. Her grasp of complex narrative techniques leaves the reader wondering what's coming next"-Val McDermid
South London private eye Saz Martin and her partner Molly are having a baby and life couldn't be better . . . until Saz takes on one of those weird and wild cases she swore she'd never get involved in again.
In this high-octane ride across the contemporary London of glitzy offices, fancy restaurants, designer bars, and damaged lives, four virtual strangers are unwittingly bound together by a dark secret which is about to blow up in their faces.
Stella Duffy, whose other Saz Martin mysteries are "Calender Girl, Beneath the Blonde" and "Wavewalker, " lives in London.
Born in London and raised in New Zealand, Stella Duffy is the author of ten novels, over thirty stories, and eight plays. Her novel State of Happiness was longlisted for the 2004 Orange Prize, and she is currently writing the screenplay adaptation for the feature film production. She has appeared on BBC Radio 4, in sitcoms, plays and quizzes, and regularly performs stand-up comedy.
?The clever money should be on Duffy when the crime-writing Oscars are dished out? Daily Telegraph ?Cracking dialogue and exuberant characters? The Times ?Clever, cunning and careful to avoid the obvious. A real treat? Val McDermid
