"Fierce, vicious, and electric. If books had teeth, Foul Is Fair would have fangs." - Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Last Girl Lied To

"An unapologetic feminist battle-cry that leaves you breathless and thirsting for vengeance." - Sonia Hartl, author of Have a Little Faith in Me

"Foul is Fair delivers the story of a girl who snatches control back from a world that stole it away, through whatever means necessary. - Sophie Gonzales, author of Only Mostly Devastated

In the morning I put on going-out makeup, and I go to Nailed It with a coffee so hot it burns my throat.

The old lady gives me new nails and looks at the bruises on my neck and the scratches across my face, but she doesn't say anything.

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

She shakes her head: No.


Jade Khanjara and her three best friends rule their glittering LA circle. They decide how the party ends - every night but one. The night four boys spike Jade's drink, lock her in a room and brutally attack her. The night they try to ruin her.

But they chose the wrong girl. Certain that the boys will face no consequences, Jade and her friends take vengeance into their own hands. There's no mercy left: and now Jade won't rest until she gets bloody satisfaction . . .

An extraordinary voice-driven thriller with a heroine you'll never forget - perfect for fans of Killing Eve and One of Us Is Lying.

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.
