Okay, I so I stopped to take a look at this one because I thought for sure it was the same as this book, which I LOVED, but it’s kinda not the same title lol . But here’s what THIS book is about:
There’s plenty of intrigue, sex, and drugs in this fast-paced mystery, set against a backdrop of gentrifying London.
Ella Riordan is a community activist who became famous when she was beaten by police during a social protest. Now Ella is a squatter in a building where the owners are evicting tenants so they can convert it into luxury condos, and she’s determined to stay and defend the few holdout tenants, despite death threats.
One night after a rooftop party with her fellow holdouts, Ella finds a horrible scene awaiting her in her apartment. In a panic, she calls her neighbor Molly, who convinces her that the police won’t believe she’s innocent. Together the two women concoct a gruesome plan to hide the body down the building’s elevator shaft.
But the secret won’t stay buried for long. As truth hangs in the balance, a neighbor tells Molly he had heard Ella arguing with a man in the hallway and mistrust grows between Ella and Molly, as repercussions of that night threaten to change both women’s lives forever.
So, Ella seems like a hardcore version of Lucy from Two Weeks Notice. Yes it’s a movie, but this is how I’m brain works — and also While You Were Sleeping aired last night. So, Ella. She comes across a murder, and interestingly, her neighbor Molly convinces he to chuck it down an elevator shaft — Ella, I don’t think Molly is your friend.
Naturally, that’s when I realise this is a character-driven story about these two women and how they deal with this body. I’m still curious as to the relationship between them and how they became the friends that would help the other hide a body, you know?
