Valerie is hooked by the scandalous tale of decadence, drugs and disasters, but as the book unfolds, chapter by chapter, email by email, building to a terrible climax, a parallel story emerges - of an author with an unusual, almost unreal, desire for anonymity.

Helen turns into a girl gone wild and manages to get herself into a situation that just might sink the happy couple for good.
