A friendship to die for. A Ripley story for the Instagram age set in contemporary New York; a world at once sophisticated and sordid, irresistible and irresponsible, unforgettable yet unattainable Louise is struggling to survive in New York; juggling a series of poorly paid jobs, renting a shabby flat, being cat-called by her creepy neighbour, she dreams of being a writer. And then one day she meets Lavinia. Lavinia who has everything – looks, money, clothes, friends, an amazing apartment… Lavinia invites Louise into her charmed circle, takes her to underground speakeasies, the opera, shares her clothes, her drugs, her Uber account. Louise knows that this can't last for ever, but just how far is she prepared to go to have this life? Or rather, to have Lavinia's life?

A well written, slightly dark novel about two young women who desperately feed off one another. Lavinia is wealthy and flamboyant and Louise is broke with multiple jobs. Dysfunction ensues in their relationship to each other as well as to their close group of extremely social friends. One thing leads to another and we have murder and deceit on our hands.
