Fashion Victim by Sam Baker

Annie Anderson, feature writer with one of Britain's leading broadsheets, decides to take a break from the tougher end of journalism. After years working undercover befriending prostitutes and drug addicts, the strain is beginning to tell. But even so, no one expects her to throw it all in and join a fashion magazine...

Thrown into the heart of New York Fashion Week, Annie is unprepared for the ultra-glamorous world of models, designers, gossip and rivalry. Then an up-and-coming designer is shot dead right in front of Annie - and suddenly, she is back on familiar territory. At first sight, it looks like a robbery gone badly wrong, but Annie is not convinced. But as she digs deeper, she's in danger of becoming the next fashion victim . . .


'Superior, tightly written thriller. Sam Baker, editor of British Comopolitan, writes with an impressively spare and structured style'

'We'd love this nail-biting thriller shot with glamour even if it wasn't written by our boss. The instantly likeable, gutsy Annie Anderson departs the gritty world of newspapers to go undercover on pretentious fashion bible, Handbag. Trying to read just one chapter is like trying to leave Topshop purchase-free. Give in and be hooked.'' *****

'A gloriously gripping, glamorous read that's as intricately woven as a Missoni top. Five stars'
