Waterstones Says

A uniquely gripping journey into London’s dark underworld and a multilayered study in trauma, Chung’s engrossing debut thriller asks questions about identity, society and truth through its unforgettable protagonist Alexa.

One woman, many personas. But which one is telling the truth?

Alexa Wu is a brilliant yet darkly self-aware young woman whose chaotic life is manipulated and controlled by a series of alternate personalities. Only three people know about their existence: her therapist Daniel; her stepmother Anna; and her enigmatic best friend Ella.

When Ella gets a job at a high-end gentleman's club, she is gradually drawn into London's cruel underbelly. With lives at stake, Alexa follows her friend on a daring rescue mission.

Threatened and vulnerable, she will discover whether her multiple personalities are her greatest asset, or her biggest obstacle.

“We need more books with this level of character development in crime thrillers”

Holy smokes!
I've known about this book since 2020 and I feel like I need to apologize to the writer for not begging for an ARC early enough so that I have enough time to talk about this beauty.
