California, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

* A highly suspenseful and thought-provoking new novel from a writer who is going from strength to strength

* 'Stella Duffy gets better and better' Ali Smith

Celebrity, identity and sexuality - the three poles of our fame-obsessed society, each one a magnet for secrets and lies.
Despite her youth, Russian-born Yana Ivanova is already a Hollywood legend. She lives in a beautiful house in Beverly Hills with Jimmy, a sitcom star, and Penny, her British PA. Theirs is a strange and uneasy partnership, held together by sex, secrets and the fear of scandal. Then Yana starts receiving threatening letters from an anonymous but very knowledgeable source. Suspicion turns to fear, and fear leads to murder. But who exactly is conning whom
Stella Duffy has written crime novels and dark romantic comedies. Here she combines the two in a smart, sexy, suspenseful new novel. Poison pen letters, fake identities, misplaced affection, betrayal and murder . . . Still think a menage à trois sounds fun
