April 2013 Book of the Month.

Glamour, fashion, power, hidden secrets from the past… it’s all here in this 7th exciting and engaging family drama from architect turned author Lesley Lokko - dubbed ‘Brainy Blockbusters’ by her publisher. A reclusive top designer is forced to face up to her past when her exclusive New Year's Eve party, on her Caribbean hideaway, is ‘crashed’ by a woman she had tried her whole life to forget.

An Absolute Deception Synopsis

Known as 'The Ice Queen', Anneliese Zander de St Phalle is one of the world's most celebrated fashion designers. With an empire that stretches across continents, she's a truly global brand, in every sense. Yet despite her success, she's a mystery; a reclusive disciplined perfectionist who rarely grants interviews. She's successful and she's talented, and that's all anyone needs to know. Anneliese never talks about her past - not even to her only daughter, Callan. She's worked hard to leave it all behind her and it's a time and place to which Anneliese will never return. Or so she thinks. At an exclusive New Year's Eve party at her glamorous island hideaway, a woman appears whom Anneliese has done her best to forget. On the cusp of her retirement, at the height of Anneliese' fame, the stranger brings a story that demands to be told. To Anneliese's horror, the past cannot be left behind; it is here, part and parcel of the present, despite everything she's done to forget it...

About Lesley Lokko

Lesley Lokko was our Guest Editor in April 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.   Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.
