Kat's Rating: 5/5

Kat's Review: If you're a fan of Hollywood glamour, raunchy suspense and secrets then this book will be right up your street! I really love Nigel's books and they are real Bonk Busters which means they are normally full of loads of sex, some normally underhand skulduggery and there is normally shed loads of celebrities or wealth floating about. This book has the whole shebang....and more! the ballroom dancing sensation MItzi has taken some time out to spend with her equally famous boyfriend Foster and they go missing at some stage during the trip. When the world moves on, Mitzi's best friend Georgia is struggling to do the same. It seems like the world is quickly forgetting Mitzi and Georgia is determined to find the truth about what happened to her.

At first it seems like there is an overload of characters but by the time I was a quarter of the way through the book it started to all link together. Although there are too many characters to mention one of my favourites was Nova, the mother of Charlie (Georgia's boyfriend) and a reality TV star. She is a larger than life character that I adored and to be frank the story just wouldn't have been the same without her.

There are so many threads to the story and it seems that everybody involved has some sort of a secret. There are also some extremely naughty scenes featured heavily in the book, so beware for commuters that like to read over your shoulder, they may get more than they bargained for. By the time I had worked out who was sleeping with who, and who was jetting off to the next country I was pretty breathless. There was so much going on but I literally couldn't stop reading. From LA to London to India, we see some amazing locations with some sensational characters and it's all wrapped up in an entire life of glamour and lies. I LOVED this book, even more than previous Nigel May books I have read. One thing is for sure and that is that I will be reading every last book he currently has out as otherwise I fear I may be missing out. If you're a fan of authors such as Jackie Collins, Tasmina Perry and the like then Nigel May needs to be your new 'go-to' author...I promise you won't be disappointed.
