'We don't want to give too much away, but you won't be able to put this one down - no matter how good the water looks' Good Housekeeping

Brett and Kelly Courtney are the shining jewels in a New York-based reality TV show called Goal Diggers. One of the most popular shows on American national television, its fiercely competitive cast of five self-made women are defined by their ruthless drive to reach the top by whatever means necessary.

The Courtney sisters' rivalry goes skin deep despite the blossoming business which helps disadvantaged women that they have built together. Harbouring bitter jealousies and dark secrets about their manufactured screen lives, they're joined by three other hyper-competitive women who all have their own agendas. And the latest season promises that sparks will fly in the quest for even higher ratings.

Vicious back-stabbing, scathing social media attacks and finely tuned scripting draw in the viewing public every week, all orchestrated by the show's omnipotent producers. But even they don't know that Season Four will end in murder . . .

'Knife-sharp and enthralling, The Favourite Sister is as bold and smart and audacious a novel about women and ambition as you could hope for' Megan Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of You Will Know Me
