Waterstones Says

Descending into a spiral of addiction through online gambling, a young woman soon finds herself in a dangerous amount of debt to the wrong person in Edwards' gripping thriller.

A tense, twisty novel about race, power, betrayal, survival - and an addiction so compelling it threatens to destroy everything in its path

Etta wants to get married. Ola, her partner, says he does too, but he's also allergic to making concrete plans and keeps insisting that they save enough for a house deposit before they even think of marriage.

So Etta finds a way to start secretly making money: online gambling. And how lucky that she just happens to be so good at it.

Soon she's playing quite a lot. She doesn't like lying to Ola, but it's all for the good of their relationship. She's even made a friend on the site, StChristopher75, and she's invited to a special VIP party. And even if she is losing a little money here and there - or even quite a lot - she'll win it back eventually. In the mean time, perhaps StChristopher75 can help her out with a little loan, once she's met him in real life. He's just won big, and he's been so friendly and helpful.

And he says her photo's hot. Why wouldn't he want to help her?

Enough to make the reader break out in a cold sweat.’ Guardian ‘A fresh, exhilarating voice’ Adele Parks ‘Unbelievably tense and twisty’ Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request ‘This deep dive into gambling addiction packs a huge emotional punch. I devoured it’ Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said ‘A brilliant portrayal of one woman’s descent into the world of online gambling – I felt every spin of the wheel; the highs of adrenaline followed by stomach churning nausea’ Nikki Smith, author of All In Her Head ‘Tense beyond belief but impossible to put down. Dark, absorbing and brilliantly terrifying’ Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City ‘Love, chance and betrayal all take a seat at the table in Rachel Edward’s compelling novel, Lucky.

“Complex and gripping”

I haven’t read anything by Rachel Edwards, but I’m totally blown away by this complex tale which explores so many issues. Addictive behaviour, racism, Windrush, love, friendship, betrayal; it’s difficult to know where... More

“Gloriously twisted tale”

I really enjoyed "Darling" but it took me a while to get into this book and the characters. However, it was definitely worth persevering as the twisted narrative becomes one of survival and betrayal in many... More
