They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer...Simon is Molly's oldest, bitchiest, best friend.
Since they high-kicked out of university, keen to taste life, Molly has become a jobbing musical theatre actress, while Simon is on the cusp of fame as his caustic, bitter alter-ego: Genita L'Warts, a drag queen with a talent for abusing audiences.
They'd always vowed no man would ever come between them, but Simon can't resist his fatal attraction to straight men.
When his endless pursuit of Mr Right Now leads to a devastating betrayal, Molly is left broken-hearted and their friendship seems fractured beyond repair.
But sometimes it's hard to tell the difference...Distraught, Molly flees for comfort to her one-time landlady, Lilia - an eccentric ex-cabaret singer with an extraordinary past.
But is Lilia's bungalow, Kit-Kat Cottage, quite the safe refuge it seems?
Lilia has plans for her protegee. She will break Molly down, remake her, and together they will achieve the kind of success that Simon can only dream of.
But exactly how far would Lilia go to realise her ambitions...?With his trademark comedy noir, Julian Clary's second novel is a hilarious riot of camp cabaret and murderous mayhem.
