Synopsis

SEX AND THE CITY with a killer edge for fans of QUEENIE, EXPECTATION and MY SISTER, THE SERIAL KILLER



SOON TO BE A MAJOR BBC TV SERIAL



'Funny, shocking, unputdownable. I loved it' PAULA HAWKINS, author of The Girl on the Train and A Slow Fire Burning



'Terrific. I just raced through Wahala. Nikki May writes so well about friendship, food, fashion and the many ways modern women can stumble in their careers and personal lives' CLARE CHAMBERS, author of Small Pleasures

_______________



Ronke, Simi, Boo are three mixed-race friends living in London. They have the gift of two cultures, Nigerian and English, though not all of them choose to see it that way.



Everyday racism has never held them back, but now in their thirties, they question their future. Ronke wants a husband (he must be Nigerian); Boo enjoys (correction: endures) stay-at-home motherhood; while Simi, full of fashion career dreams, rolls her eyes as her boss refers to her urban vibe yet again.



When Isobel, a lethally glamorous friend from their past arrives in town, she is determined to fix their futures for them.



Cracks in their friendship begin to appear, and it is soon obvious Isobel is not sorting but wrecking. When she is driven to a terrible act, the women are forced to reckon with a crime in their past that may just have repeated itself.



Explosive, hilarious and wildly entertaining, this razor-sharp tale of love, race and family will have you laughing, crying and gasping in horror. Fearlessly political about class, colourism and clothes, the spellbinding Wahala is for anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.



'Funny, tragic, piercing portrait of modern women and friendship written in glittering and discerning prose' EMMA STONEX, author of THE LAMPLIGHTERS

'Sharp, precise, unapologetic, modern. In one word, Exquisite!'

Lola Akinmade Akerstroem, author of IN EVERY MIRROR SHE'S BLACK

'I have a feeling this book is going to be huge' MARIANNE CRONIN

'Bold, juicy and real. WAHALA is tense and powerful' LAUREN NORTH

'Fantastic! Brilliant writing about food and friendship. I was left wanting more' SARAH PEARSE

'Love that 'Sex and the City' has finally met moi-moi and plantain with a whole lot of Wahala thrown in' ROSANNA AMAKA
