The Fraud Squad (Paperback)Kyla Zhao (author)
'Immersive, cinematic, and exquisitely fun! The perfect debut'
'Escapism at its finest. This book will swallow you right up and keep you awake until you turn the last page'
CRAZY RICH ASIANS meets THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, with a dash of GOSSIP GIRL, in this dazzling debut novel.
Samantha Song has always dreamed of having her own by-line in a high-society magazine. But the death of her father and the constant struggle to help her mum make ends meet make it feel like a distant fantasy. Instead, she works at a drab PR firm and lives vicariously through her socialite co-worker Anya Chen.
Then she meets Timothy Kingston: the disillusioned son of one of Singapore's elite families, and Sam's one chance at infiltrating the world to which she so desperately wants to belong. To Sam's surprise, Tim and Anya both agree to help her make a name for herself, but the borrowed designer clothes and plus-ones to every party and major event can only get her so far; the rest is on Sam.
The deeper she goes though, the more she fears being exposed. And with an anonymous reporter on the prowl for high-society gossip, Sam must scramble to reconcile her pretence with who she really is before she loses it all.
Packed full of glitz and glamour, food and fashion and heaps of heart, THE FRAUD SQUAD is perfect for fans of Kevin Kwan and Lauren Ho.
