Tell Me How It Ends (Hardback)V. B. Grey (author)
'A spellbinding read' LOUISE CANDLISH
'A stylish and page-turning mystery' RACHEL HORE
A gripping drama of past secrets revealed, of manipulation and revenge, for fans of Daphne du Maurier and noir movies like All About Eve and A Star is Born
Delia Maxwell is an international singing sensation, an icon of 1950s glamour who is still riding high on the new 60s scene. Adored by millions, all men want to be with her, all women want to be her. But one woman wants it maybe a little too much...
Lily Brooks has watched Delia all her life, studying her music and her on-stage mannerisms. Now she has a dream job as Delia's assistant - but is there more to her attachment than the admiration of a fan? Private investigator Frank is beginning to wonder.
As Lily steps into Delia's spotlight, and Delia encourages her ambitious protegée, Frank's suspicions of Lily's ulterior motives increase. But are his own feelings for Delia clouding his judgement?
The truth is something far darker: the shocking result of years of pain and rage, rooted in Europe's darkest hour. If Delia thought she had put her past behind her, she had better start watching her back.
