In a city of strangers, who can you trust?

Soho, London, 1952. Dina, here from Cyprus, lands a job sewing barely-there costumes at the Pelican Revue Bar, where she meets glamorous Bebba. With her dyed blonde hair, leopard skin coat and wicked humour, the friends take the town by storm.

But Bebba has a secret. And as thick smog descends, the truth emerges with devastating results. Dina’s new life now hangs by a thread. What will be left when the fog finally clears? And what will she risk to protect her future?

“A gripping, evocative story of the dangers facing a young Cypriot girl in 1950s Soho. Even breathing the air is a risk as the great smog descends. The louche world of cafés and strip clubs are well researched and utterly convincing. A real gem of a book.” (Gill Paul, bestselling author of The Collector’s Daughter)
