The opulence and excess of moneyed Los Angeles collides with the desperation of a wily con-artist in Brown’s wickedly indulgent and supremely gripping psychological thriller, packed with twists and unexpected revelations.
Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy arts degree would lead to a fulfilling career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan. But when her mom falls ill, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, running her most dangerous scam yet.
Vanessa is a privileged young heiress who wanted to make her mark in the world. Instead she becomes an Instagram influencer - but behind the covetable facade is a life marked by tragedy.
After a broken engagement, Vanessa retreats to her family's sprawling mountain estate, a mansion of dark secrets. It's there that her path collides with Nina's and gives way to a winter of desire and aspiration, duplicity and revenge.

'Pretty Things is awesome. Simple as that. I loved every page. Janelle Brown is your new must-read author.' - Harlan Coben
'I love a good con story - especially when I can't tell who's the actual mark and who's the real con artist. In Janelle Brown's compulsively readable Pretty Things, the good girls and the bad girls keep switching places in a story that will keep you turning pages till the end. Brown's latest novel has the same sharp observations that are her trademark-about shifting identities and the secrets we all keep.' - Attica Locke
