How do you find a missing actress in a city where everyone's playing a role?

'FABULOUS!' Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

'Scintillating' Observer

'Vibrant and atmospheric' Daily Express

Soho. 1965, When an American actress disappears from the Galaxy Theatre, her young dresser, Anna Treadway is determined to find out what happened to her.

Anna's search will lead her through a London she barely knew existed: a city of reggae clubs and back street doctors, of dangerous prejudice and unexpected allies. She is aided by a disparate group of emigres, each carrying secrets of their own.

But before she can discover the truth about Iolanthe, Anna will need to open herself - to her past, her present and the possibility of love.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A fabulous depiction of a London where the 'Swinging Sixties' hides a darker more complicated story of prejudice and struggle. I loved the strong women and evocative writing from an author offering more questions than clues' Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

'A fabulous period piece, expertly evoked, that looks at race, identity, isolation and acceptance, and everyone's need to find love' Daily Mail

'Well researched and well crafted' Observer

'A deftly assured debut, full of layers and characters that come alive in a few vivid sentences. I can't wait to read more from Miranda Emmerson' Red

'A zippy read set in the Swinging Sixties' Good Housekeeping
