Description

"Alvina is a character that readers won't soon forget--funny, fierce, and fabulous."--Booklist (starred review)

Stealing her sister's life was only the beginning.

Alvie Knightly flees Sicily for a suite at the Ritz after her not-so-playful sibling rivalry ends in murder.

Beautiful, spoiled Beth may be out of the way, but Alvie's discovering what happens when you steal your twin's identity. Especially now Beth's body has been found. The police aren't the only ones Alvie has to worry about. Her hot new boyfriend has vanished, along with every penny of their stolen riches.

But Alvie has never shied away from a challenge. She pursues the traitor to Rome in a life-or-death game of cat and mouse. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - but can Alvie get revenge before her own crimes catch up with her?

“Chloe Esposito introduces a compelling and uncensored antiheroine in her trilogy’s first novel.” 
– US Weekly 

“Esposito comes on the scene at breakneck speed in this debut, combining sex, drugs, and a bloodlust that is never satisfied. Alvina is a character that readers won’t soon forget—funny, fierce, and fabulous... readers will clamor for the next two books faster than you can pull the trigger on a gun.”
Booklist (starred review) for Mad

Mad is deliciously over-the-top, with a protagonist you’ll never forget and an ending that promises more chaos to come.”
Bookpage

"I just read Mad in one go. I bloody LOVED it. Like Gone Girl, if Amy Schumer had written it. SUCH fun."
--Bryony Gordon, bestselling author of Mad Girl
