I point at my hair, and I say,
This color. You know what it's called?

She shakes her head: No.
She says Good girl. Kill him.

Revenge is a bitch.

Jade Khanjara and her three best friends rule their glittering LA circle. They control everything.
Until one night.

The night four boys spike Jade's drink, lock her in a room and attack her. When they try to ruin her.
But they chose the wrong girl.

Jade is made of claws and fangs and cruel sharp edges. Jade will have them clutching at their throats and choking on blood.

She wants revenge. She has no mercy. And now she won't rest until she gets satisfaction.

This is the thriller for fans of Killing Eve and One of Us is Lying. This isn't for the light hearted.

About the author

Hannah Capin

Hannah Capin has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember. She finished her first "novel" when she was eleven, about a girl detective and a brilliant villain looking for revenge. Thousands of pages later, she's still writing about smart girls and vengeance. When she's not working on her next manuscript, you can find her sailing, singing, or pulling marathon gossip sessions with her girl squad. Hannah hold degrees from Columbia University and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music - the latter is in saxophone performance, and she has zero regrets. Hannah's debut novel The Dead Queens Club was released in January 2019, and Foul Is Fair will be released in January 2020.
