About the book

'Glamorous, shocking and deliciously deceptive. The kind of sharp, exciting and sophisticated mystery I just adore' CHRIS WHITAKER, author of We Begin at the End

'A richly drawn and riveting tale of friendship gone wrong, with too many secrets, twists, and lies to count' SARA SHEPARD, author of Pretty Little Liars

Gone Girl meets The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo in this deliciously gripping novel set in the world of Hong Kong's super-rich, where everyone has secrets... some of which may get you killed.

When Martina Torres arrives in the glamorous and vibrant metropolis of Hong Kong, newly married to her high school sweetheart, the world seems to be her oyster. But looks can be deceiving. Adrift in a foreign city, with no job and no friends, Martina chafes in her new role as Expat Wife.

Her luck changes when she meets Veronica Hawkins. Beautiful, sophisticated, and very, very rich, Veronica is the epitome of Old Hong Kong - the last surviving member of a British mercantile dynasty that built the city during its colonial heyday. Martina can hardly believe her fortune when she's taken under Veronica's wing and into her confidence, with Veronica helping her to find a new apartment, a new career, and most importantly, a new self.

Veronica transforms Martina's life and then, shockingly, she dies. She disappears over the side of a yacht during a party attended by Hong Kong's most influential people - yet somehow there are no witnesses.

Was it murder? Suicide? A terrible accident? What really happened to Veronica Hawkins?

Somebody knows but nobody's telling.
