Dirty Money

Starring two female leads and set in contemporary London, Dirty Money takes the reader from the extreme wealth of Mayfair’s leafy neighbourhoods, to the bustle of Soho’s nightclubs, and the backstreets of East London, where affluent hipsters and working-class Londoners live parallel lives.

In Dirty Money, Charlotte Philby skewers the poison that runs through the veins of the capital at both extremes of society and introduces two unforgettable new characters to the crime genre.
