Overview

A contemporary London-set crime novel from the author of the the Peculiar Crimes Unit series. • Sex and the City meets the modern crime thriller. • Apartment-sitting in a luxury penthouse goes horribly wrong for June Cryer when a young girl breaks into the apartment only to be horribly murdered and June must find the killer, before he finds her.

June Cryer is a shopaholic suburban housewife trapped in a lousy marriage. After discovering her husband’s infidelity with her flight attendant neighbour, Hilary ‘Boarding From The Rear’ Cooper, she loses her home, her husband and her credit rating. • Then her best pal Lou offers a solution; a mutual friend needs someone reliable to act as caretaker in a spectacular London high-rise apartment. It’s just for the weekend, but there’s good money in it... Seizing the opportunity to escape, June moves into the penthouse only to find that there’s no electricity and the phones don’t work. She must flat-sit until the security system comes back on. When a terrified girl breaks into the flat and June makes the mistake of asking the neighbours for help, she finds herself embroiled in an escalating nightmare, trying to prove that a murderer exists. Over the next 24 hours she must survive on the streets without friends or money, solve an impossible crime, and fight off the urge to buy a new wardrobe. • Christopher Fowler’s cult novel features a foreword by Joanne Harris. • ‘The dark reverse of a personal growth novel, a hoot of a crime thriller.’ Literary Editor, The Independent.
