Authors Shari Low and Ross King
The Cover for The Rise

My Review: I love Shari Low’s books and this collab with Ross King is totally loveable and this book is funny, shocking and surreal in a good way, Each chapter has its own song and names what year its meant to be and where its set. I was jigging away to some of the songs.
We follow Davie Johnston and many other characters where when you read it you will wonder who they could be modelled on name wise. We have Thrupples, Love, Sex and Music and intrigue. So many twists and turns. It’s a very entertaining book. Fully Recommended.

The Rise

When we bury our secrets, they always come back to haunt us…

Their rise was meteoric.

Only a few years before, they had been three friends from Glasgow, just trying to survive tough lives of danger and dysfunction.

But on one Hollywood evening in 1993, they were on the world’s biggest stage, accepting their Oscar in front of the watching world.

That night was the beginning of their careers. But it was also the end of their friendship.

Over the next twenty years, Mirren McLean would become one of the most powerful writers in the movie industry.

Zander Leith would break box-office records as cinema’s most in-demand action hero.

And Davie Johnson would rake in millions as producer of some of the biggest shows on TV.

For two decades they didn’t speak, driven apart by a horrific secret.

Until now…

Their past is coming back to bite them, and they have to decide whether to run, hide, or fight.

Because when you rise to the top, there’s always someone who wants to see you fall.

An exciting new glam thriller for the fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Liane Moriarty and Jo Spain
