About The Book

It’s peak 90s London. Scandal dominates the headlines, men dominate the board rooms, and Becky Sharp will stop at nothing to reach the top at the Mercury newspaper.

Mingling with tabloid millionaires and trading favours with royalty, Becky lands scoop after scoop, ruthlessly carving a place for herself in a world determined to ignore her. These are the biggest stories of the decade, and Becky has something to do with every one of them.

But Becky may have more in common with the people she writes about than she thinks – what takes a lifetime to build takes only a moment to destroy . . .
