'Delicious: such gossipy, naughty fun. Cancel all plans while reading - I inhaled this darkly hilarious book over one weekend and resented everything that kept me away from it' LUCY FOLEY

'Packed with sun-soaked secrets, outrageous scandals and salacious gossip...Ithe caustic wit dripping from each page make this a perfect rich-people-behaving-badly beach read. Loved it!' ELLERY LLOYD, AUTHOR OF THE CLUB

'Whip-smart, gossipy, beachy vibes, with page-turning thrills. Like Rivals meets Malibu Rising with Nancy Mitford-esque observations. The ultimate beach read with edge. Loved it' GEORGINA MOORE, AUTHOR OF THE GARNETT GIRLS

None of them would claim to be a good person, but who among them is capable of murder? . . .

A whip-smart, propulsive debut about infidelity, backstabbing, and murderous intrigue, set against an exclusive summer haven on Fire Island

The families on the island have been vacationing here for years; the Weinsteins, the Metzners, the Grobels -
and unlucky in love Rachel Woolf.

Outsiders aren't welcome. That is except for Robert, the handsome new tennis coach, who some people are going out of their way to make very welcome . . .

But the problem when everyone knows everyone is that secrets can't stay secret forever.

And when a body is found face-down beneath the boardwalk, they realise that maybe one of them is worse than they thought . . .

Stylish, subversive and darkly comedic, this is a story of what's lurking under the surface of picture-perfect lives in a place where everyone has something to hide . .
