"Naughton’s dazzlingly inventive novel set in Chelsea "

Sarah J Naughton’s dazzlingly inventive novel set in Chelsea and my crime book of the month, seem at first to conform to the stereotype; three years after first meeting they’re still getting together for boozy evenings where they let rip about their partners. When one husband disappears, the women close ranks to support his wife, but the police are shocked by what they say behind each other’s backs.
