The only way is murder…
Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner working in London, is forced to brush up on her detective skills for a third time when her cousin Sarika is plunged into danger.
Sarika and her reality TV star boyfriend Terry both receive threatening notes. When Terry stops calling, Lena assumes he’s lost interest. Until he turns up. Dead. Lena knows she must act fast to keep her cousin from the same fate.
Scrubbing her way through the grubby world of reality television, online dating and betrayed lovers, Lena finds it harder than she thought to discern what’s real – and what’s just for the cameras.

Due to unforeseen commitments, I was unable to read the book to post a review here on my stop on the Blog Tour and I feel really bad about that as I was looking forward to this detective story.
For now, I will tell you why I wanted to read this book and share my review later (once I have read the book – hopefully in the near future). Following are my reasons.
- The protagonist is a POC living in a white country
- I have never before read of a heroine (or protagonist) in the cleaning business (incidentally after I signed up for this tour, I came across another book where the protagonist started a cleaning business)
- Mundy’s writing is described as witty and beautiful
