Delia, the heroine of V B Grey's gripping and subtle novel, is a fabulous study in ambivalence, guilt and yearning, and her portrait of Sixties London - a melting pot for the war-damaged, the ambitious, as well as the decent - is terrific
Delia, the heroine of V.B. Grey's gripping and subtle novel is a fabulous study in ambivalence, guilt and yearning, and her portrait of Sixties London ... is terrific'
A nuanced and moving portrait of ambition, manipulation, and the emotional havoc created by those unable to escape the past, set against the heady, soon-to-be-lost glamour of early 1960s showbiz
I loved this elegant and enthralling novel, with its clever shades of All About Eve and A Star is Born. Beneath the surface glamour of early-Sixties showbiz, the devastating personal histories of Delia, Lily and Frank continue to haunt and torment them. Who, if any, will triumph? A spellbinding read
Tell Me How It Ends is a gorgeously written novel which evokes the atmosphere and glamour of old Hollywood while including utterly modern themes. Best enjoyed with a dry martini and some jazz on the (vinyl) record player
A stylish and page-turning mystery with dark secrets at its core
Mesmerising and powerful, with an extraordinary sense of time and place and characters you will never forget
With clear homages to film noir, this intriguing read will grip you from the start
Takes elements of classic mystery novels with the glamour and pizzazz of celebrity and turns both on their heads. Captivating
With obvious debts to both A Star is Born and All About Eve, this is the full-on book equivalent of a classic Hollywood "woman's picture"
Clever, generous and imaginative, this is an excellent crime novel
Inspired by women-centred narratives and the noir thrillers of the 40s and 50s, Grey invites readers into a glamorous, dark world of ambition, manipulation and revenge
With clear homages to film noir, this intriguing and nostalgic read will grip you from the beginning
