Desiree Pierce, a Black reality TV star, is found dead on a playground in the Bronx. Her death is quickly declared an overdose by the police and the media – tragic, but not a crime.
Lena Scott, Desiree’s sister, knows that can’t be true. Torn apart by Desiree’s partying and by their father, a wealthy and influential hip-hop mogul, the sisters haven’t spoken in years. But some things about Desiree couldn’t have changed, even with time.
Nobody is listening to her, but Lena is determined not to let anyone brush off her sister’s death. She will find justice, even if it means uncovering the family’s darkest secrets – or putting her own life at risk.Because there are two sides to every story – the one being told, and the one nobody wants you to know . . . Praise for Like A Sister:
‘A wild ride of a thriller! I inhaled this book’ Liz Nugent
'Sometimes a novel perfectly captures a particular voice, a time, and a place. That’s very much the case with Kellye Garrett’s Like a Sister
, a crime novel that not so much hits the zeitgeist as bludgeons it with a hammer. A twisty tale of murder, greed, family secrets, and the perils of fame, Garrett’s prose crackles along at breakneck pace, dissecting issues of race, class, and modern culture with aplomb!' Vaseem Khan
'I tore through Like a Sister
- a stand-out, propulsive thriller from such a fresh, original voice. Lena is an unforgettable heroine - vulnerable, witty, and relentless in her quest for justice. Suspenseful storytelling at its best. Loved it!' Caz Frear
