Spectacularly worth reading The Times Longlisted for the Orange Prize A fast-paced literary thriller in which ex-belly dancer Evangelines fight to protect three-year-old Lily draws her into the seedy underworld of her past the first book in Louisa Youngs celebrated Angeline Gower trilogy. Angeline Gower had no choice, and now shes very glad she didnt. Angeline is reformed. Shes thrown off the bike, the travel, the dancing, and taken on the care of her late sisters baby, Lily. Domestic bliss has trumped wild adventure. At least until a misdemeanour leaves her owing a crooked cop a favour (and what a favour) re-treading her old life, befriending her old boyfriend and oh, getting in with a drug cartel. Never confounded by the intricate web of lies and deceit that lead her away from Lily, Angeline is a heroine of the new guard in this deliciously funny and razor-sharp tale.
