Vanessa and Kate live a glamorous life in the South of France helping the rich stay richer by hiding their money.

While they know it's wrong, that their clients are corrupt, they are professionals and good at their jobs.

Plus, there is the money . . . When their boss draws them deeper into his web of corruption, the chic veneer of their existence falls away, along with their excuses, leaving both women dangerously exposed to the lures of greed, gambling and hazardous liaisons.

Vanessa and Kate become desperate for an escape route, a way to beat the system without destroying themselves, but the only ones available make them worse than those they are seeking to evade.

While one woman pulls away from corruption, the other is drawn in.

Praise for Megan Davis:'A sharply written, clever and classy thrill-ride through the streets of Paris.

Atmospheric and twisting' CHRIS WHITAKER 'An intelligent, gripping and stylish literary thriller - I couldn't put it down.
