You Don't Have to be Good
  • You Don't Have to be Good

  • Sometimes doing the right thing ins't an option.

    In her late forties, in a stalled marriage and emailed half to death at work, solid, dependable, sensible Bea notices that she is starting to disappear. One morning on her way to work she vanishes completely.

    Her husband is suspected of murder, high-flying sister Katherine starts to unravel and Katherine's teenage children, Laura and Adrian - brilliant, difficult, and wise - struggle to solve the mystery of their beloved aunt's disappearance.

    Touching and funny, You Don't have to be Good is a sharp and clever look at what happens when a woman reaches the point where being good is no longer an option.
