Quick and Enjoyable read. This is a dark, twisted book that uncovers the uncomfortable, yet realistic shadows of the celebrity world. Andrew takes the celebrity’s problem and turns it into a payday for himself and a solution for him/her. It makes you question everything you know about today’s rich and famous and the secrets they could be hiding and what they might be getting away with. I found myself staying up late, turning pages to connect the dots through all the foreshadowing, but only getting small tastes of what’s to come. The plotting, the characterizations, and the dialog are consistently excellent. Hennerley captures the subtleties of several different kinds of relationships between celebrities and their entitlements, from a few very different perspectives.

Andrew, a professional fixer for the rich and famous in the UK, is the one called in to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the elite. Shelley, a self-centered actress wants a divorce from her gay, professional footballer husband. Shelley knew when she married Jack that he was gay but still entered into the marriage knowing it would boost her career. Jack agreed because it would solidify his sex symbol image. Shelley thinks because she spent so much time dealing with Jack being gay that she is entitled to his entire fortune. She wants Andy’s help to make this happen. Joey Camps is a reality star that has just insulted the Queen on live TV. His career might be over, so of course he looks to Andy to help him fix this problem. Charlie is another celebrity fixer, but he needs Andy’s help for a famous pop star client, Janey Jax. She has a completely immoral ritual she performs every 3 months to keep herself young. In order to get the disgusting “ingredient” she needs for her ritual, Charlie looks to Andy. Then you have Johnny, Andy’s boyfriend. Johnny has been with Andrew for years and they love each other, but Johnny has developed a dark and dangerous craving for violence that he doesn’t want to share with Andy. Don’t get me started on that Producer. He just made my skin crawl. This work of fiction makes you question things you know about the “real” celebrity world and whether any of the celebrities you know actually resort to these methods to “fix” their problems. I was entertained from beginning to end.

Hennerley wisely keeps readers guessing about how Andy might pull off all of his celebrity scheming and what might become of Andy’s boyfriend Johnny, who has developed a thirst for violence and destruction. Andy is paid to fix problems for famous people, so their names never end up tarnished, yet he is going through his own personal problems. He makes it so there’s a reasonable explanation or excuse for each of them for every crazy, but true, story that ends up in the tabloids. You get: the snappy characterizations and plot twists that make you want to read to the end in one shot. I was hooked as soon as I grasped the basic plot.
