Discover the seriously funny, stunningly written novel about one woman's attempts to put her past behind her, from the author of 2023 No. 1 bestseller AGAIN RACHEL

'A brilliant, unusual, brave book . Confirms Keyes's place as one of our finest writers' JOJO MOYES

Meet Helen Walsh.

Wasp-tongued private investigator Helen doesn't believe in love, fear or hot drinks.

But when a missing persons case takes her into the dark, glamorous world of her dodgy ex, Jay Parker, she is drawn away from Artie Devlin, her distinctly unglamorous detective boyfriend.

This isn't good news for Helen.

For Jay's fame-hungry world is one of smoke and mirrors, and Helen is no longer sure what she's doing, or quite why she's doing it...

To save herself from the brink, she'll have to start believing in something - and fast.

But will it be fear? Or love?

Love the Walsh sisters? Don't miss out on the eagerly awaited sequel to Rachel's Holiday: AGAIN, RACHEL . . .
