Description

Annie Anderson has felt like a fake since she was 18 years old. Now a successful award-winning investigative journalist, she is 30 and burnt out. She needs a break from writing about paedophile rings and drug addicts. She also can't keep running from herself. She takes the soft option of becoming a fashion correspondent for Handbag, a glossy, in order to get some distance from the horrors of her previous job. A cushy number in New York, Milan and Paris covering the fluffy world of fashion might just give her the perspective she needs. Unfortunately, reality comes crashing in when the young wunderkind designer Mark Mailer whom she is assigned to profile, is shot in front of her in a bungled raid on a nightclub. Annie is convinced this shooting isn't some hit and run accident. Soon her old self emerges as her journalistic instincts lead her into a dangerous world of fakes, freaks, kidnaps and swindles. Annie discovers that fashion is as dark as it is glamorous. As she digs out the truth, she digs into her own past and finally learns to stop running.show more
