Vaughan, Sarah

  0 Reviews

The crux of the matter: why has tabloid journalist Mike Stokes been found at the bottom of the stairs in the home of MP Emma Webster? Seeing as Mike and Emma had successfully collaborated on promoting legislation to protect the victims of revenge porn, it’s hard to understand what could have happened, especially when Emma is subsequently charged with murder. Her family and her career will be under the legal spotlight but so too will be her reputation, that elusive attribute built over a lifetime.

Gripping and confronting, this English story is a page-turner, highlighting the abuse and misogyny peddled on social media, the power of the mainstream media to create, shape and influence reputation and the challenges faced by women who are in the public eye.

"A fast moving, gripping book and a quick read."

"Realistic scenarios - pressure on public figures, difficulties of child sharing, power of social media, and many others."

"I did not initially warm to Emma and had to force myself to continue. I'm glad I did as it became very gripping."

"Information is dealt out a little at a time, so the reader keeps wanting to know more."

"I found the book slow to begin with. It becomes gripping after the journalist's death."
