‘It was a decade since the wide-eyed innocent Zara had stepped foot into the heaving mass of Mumbai. They had watched her claw her way to the top, resenting every success she had, this two-bit nobody who had come from nowhere to rule over them all. But they hadn’t counted on Zara. And as the ocean waters cast a haze where they met the sands, Zara knew she would do everything to hold onto this view. Or die trying…’
Zara Das is Bollywood’s hottest property, her every move watched by the eyes of the press. Riding high from the success of a string of blockbusters, she has the world at her feet, but the scandal from her latest film threatens to dethrone her as Bollywood’s reigning queen.
So when superstar director Raj Dillon stages a lavish retelling of Pride and Prejudice, moving the shoot from Mumbai’s soundstages to London, Zara knows this is the role that could put her back on top. Coming with them are the Bollywood Wives - Jackie, Sasha, and Rani - bringing their own off-screen drama.
But behind the diamonds, designer clothes and seven-star hotels lies the truth of how Zara reached the top. And when a dead body is found in her hotel room, it seems that someone is determined to take Zara down - and will stop at nothing to expose her darkest secrets.
Zara has spent years running from her past. But now it’s caught up with her…
A gripping, scandalous novel set in the world of Bollywood - fans of Jackie Collins, Crazy Rich Asians and Lauren Weisberger won’t be able to put this one down.
