All that glitters is not gold?

The Vanity Game - HJ Hampson

A great read during which I almost felt I was reading a Jackie Collins novel initially. The reader feels like a voyeur, glimpsing the lives of the rich and famous whose good looks or talent allow them to have lifestyles where they can do anything with no penalty to pay. Is that true?

I really don't want to say much more! Read this book. It's so dark and quite terrifying, not like I initially thought at all. Hampson tells the story so well that you drift from outrage to almost sympathy and back again seamlessly. It's a very clever book and makes you wonder if this could ever happen.

I was going to call my review 'Horrific Brilliance' and that is equally true.

Loved it. Excellent. 5 stars are well deserved here.
