Publisher's Summary

It is the sweltering summer of 1997 when strait-laced, straight-A student Karen meets Biba - a bohemian and impossibly glamorous aspiring actress. She is drawn to her new friend’s carefree world of constant parties, and quickly abandons her old life to move into the crumbling Highgate mansion Biba shares with her brother Rex and a stream of lodgers. For a while, life is one long summer of love. But summer must end. And by the end of theirs, two people would be dead.

very good

This is not the type of work I normally read or listen to but I enjoyed this a lot. After a dramatic and engaging start, the narrative runs along two lines, the present and the events of a decade earlier, before the two strands meet and go forward to a really gripping climax. The narrator is well-chosen too and I really wanted to know how it was going to conclude.
