Lesley Lokko's first novel, SUNDOWNERS, was one of the most widely-praised debuts in commercial fiction in 2004, grossing 30,000 copies in the trade. Lesley Lokko combines a thrilling narrative, glamorous characters and intelligent storylines - all the right ingredients for the perfect 'big read'. Praise for SUNDOWNERS: 'Best described as a Blockbuster Plus - in this case, plus a little bit more intelligence and social and political grip than normal... Agreeably glamorous and pageturning.' Daily Mail
