Beauty Queen, Bobbie, is a brave young Yorkshire lass who by chance samples the 1920s-high life in New York. However, all the glitz, glamour and showgirl benefits come with a heavy price. She inadvertently brushes shoulders with the likes of W C Fields, Al Capone and the mafia, has dalliances with a range of unsavoury men, ends up taking diet pills to stay ahead of the competition, and has two serious accidents which almost take her life. Added to this is a complicated relationship with her mother, and a series of long haul trips from New York to England. When summoned to America to pay off an outstanding debt, however, things turn decidedly sinister. Step back into the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and 1920s Britain with this cinematic novel. Enter a world filled with opportunities and opulence, showgirl life and mafia links, and wait for the sparks to fly. This thoroughly entertaining historical novel gives a gritty glimpse into the darker side of wealth, families, siblings, love, death, lies, deceit, tragedy and secrets. And do you know what the best part is? It's all based on a true story.
