Two female lawyers living the high life in the South of France explore the limits of their own corruption when they find themselves at the mercy of their dangerous clients who would prefer to kill them than be exposed.


'Chic and gripping' IMRAN MAHMOOD

'Immersive, atmospheric' ROBERT RUTHERFORD

Money wrote the rules on the Côte d'Azur and the real locals were those who understood this.

Vanessa and Kate live a glamorous life in the South of France helping the rich stay richer by hiding their money. While they know it's wrong, that their clients are corrupt, they are professionals and good at their jobs. Plus, there is the money . . .

When their boss draws them deeper into his web of corruption, the chic veneer of their existence falls away, along with their excuses, leaving both women dangerously exposed to the lures of greed, gambling and hazardous liaisons. Vanessa and Kate become desperate for an escape route, a way to beat the system without destroying themselves, but the only ones available make them worse than those they are seeking to evade. While one woman pulls away from corruption, the other is drawn in. But just how far will each of them go for money - their clients' and their own - before someone is killed?

Amid the opulence of the Côte D'Azur, Bay of Thieves explores the distorting power of wealth and its ability to destroy beliefs held over a lifetime.
