"overs of Raymond Chandler-tinged noir are in for a huge treat."

The wonderful Juniper Song trilogy by Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay, is being released in the UK by Faber this month, and lovers of Raymond Chandler-tinged noir are in for a huge treat. In the first, Follow Her Home, we are introduced to Juniper Song, a Korean-American “half-employed” twentysomething from Los Angeles. Obsessed with Chandler and his PI hero Philip Marlowe, she jumps at the chance when her best friend, Luke, asks her to find out if his father is playing away with a young woman at his work... Song is a fantastic creation, sardonic and laid-back, permanently lighting up Lucky Strikes and smirking as she considers what Marlowe might do if faced with her challenges.
