Publisher's Summary

Why would anyone want to kill Penny Varnavides, best-selling author of the Teen Dreams series? Her demise can't be the freak accident it first appeared - it's an exact replica of the murder method in her forthcoming book. 

Only three people knew the plot of Penny's unpublished novel: her literary agent, her editor and her ex-girlfriend, Meredith. In an effort to clear Meredith, Lindsay Gordon delves beneath the glittering facade of the seemingly glamorous world of London publishing in search of a murderer. 

While hobnobbing with industry notables, Lindsay encounters an unsavoury mix of soured relationships, desperate power plays, underhanded fraud and seething rivalries. Who, amongst this sordid group, wanted Penny Varnavides dead?

Accents by narrator ruin this

This is not one of Val's best stories but it was thoroughly spoilt by the atrocious accents of the narrator.
I did make it to the end but honestly felt the narration took away from what was an OK story.

Disappointed Val McDermid fan

I found the narration absolutely dreadful and the attempts at American & Liverpool accents became so annoying that I could not finish the book. The plot was simply sub standard and this is coming from a big Val McDermid fan. Extremely disappointing.

Val Mcdermid,s new book a disappointment

I am a great fan of her writing style and the other books written by Ms Mcdermid contained quite black humour with interesting twists and the characters were more mainstream. Unfortunately this book is not appealing as it seems to be trying hard to appeal to a lesbian audience and whilst I am not concerned about other people’s sexuality I am really not interested in the prolonged description of Lesbian courtship that the story starts with. I am probably being unfair but have decided not to proceed with the book and will wait for another Steele story.
The reader is also not easy to listen to.
