Self-assured Miles, clever Grace, talented Alex and beautiful Sasha have the world at their feet. But one dark night will change their perfect lives forever. As the friends move into glamorous careers – fashion, music, politics – each tries to put the past behind them. But no matter how far their stars rise, they cannot escape the dreadful truth. And when the consequences of that night finally catch up with them, for one of the four, there is a terrible price to be paid…

The story kept me in suspense until the end.
Alex I enjoyed following his journey through the book.
The last half hour
This book was a classical Tasmina Perry keeps you interested and it is hard to put down
I know this is probably more of a summer read, but it was just the thing I needed to get me through cold miserable London mornings - sex, glamour, scandal, mystery... what's not to love! Perhaps her best yet?
"Good book - poor narrator"
Couldn't stand the accents/intonations used by this narrator. They were very poor - I am an adult, and do not want to hear silly voices! Why don't these people just read the book?!
"Very good listen"
Only thing that confuses a little is the voice of the men all sound the same. Voices of female characters and overall narration good, but voices of the men could have been better. Think narrator needs to avoid multiple male characters in same scenes as hard to differentiate until 'said miles' etc but overall is still worth a listen.
Tried but couldn't even make to the end of this book. I normally enjoy Tasmina Perry but this was not good reading. Maybe the narrator didn't help but not for me.
"Trashy chick lit with odd narration"
Feel very similar to one of the other reviewers. The book was good, up to normal Tasmina Perry standard and pure escapism. However the narrator also grated on me after a while, very deep voices for men, very squeaky voices for the women. Started off finding it quite funny, but it's a long book...
