'A remarkable and incendiary novel' WIZ WHARTON

'Incredibly, brilliantly entertaining... What a treat' CHARLOTTE PHILBY

Athena Liu is a literary darling. June Hayward is literally nobody.

White lies
When Athena dies in a freak accident, June steals her unpublished manuscript and publishes it as her own under the ambiguous name Juniper Song.

Dark humour
But as evidence threatens June's stolen success, she will discover exactly how far she will go to keep what she thinks she deserves.

Deadly consequences...
What happens next is entirely everyone else's fault.
