I loved this elegant and enthralling novel, with its clever shades of All About Eve and A Star is Born. Beneath the surface glamour of early-Sixties showbiz, the devastating personal histories of Delia, Lily and Frank continue to haunt and torment them. Who, if any, will triumph? A spellbinding read - Louise CandlishDelia, the heroine of V.B. Grey's gripping and subtle novel is a fabulous study in ambivalence, guilt and yearning, and her portrait of Sixties London ... is terrific' - Elizabeth BuchanA nuanced and moving portrait of ambition, manipulation, and the emotional havoc created by those unable to escape the past, set against the heady, soon-to-be-lost glamour of early 1960s showbiz - Laura WilsonTell Me How It Ends is a gorgeously written novel which evokes the atmosphere and glamour of old Hollywood while including utterly modern themes. Best enjoyed with a dry martini and some jazz on the (vinyl) record player - Sinead CrowleyGrey is one of the most intelligent authors of contemporary crime fiction ... a sympathetic, suspense-packed novel - Sunday Times on Wrong Way HomeGrey is an elegant writer [and] a careful plotter - The TimesA classy, satisfying read, superbly put together Interesting and enjoyable.
