Paperback Spotlight

The Arrangement

A Pretty Woman tale turns toxic and deadly in this provocative and riveting thriller of sex, obsession and murder from the “master of domestic suspense” (Kathleen Barber, author of ARE YOU SLEEPING) and the USA TODAY bestselling author of THE SWAP and HER PRETTY FACE.

Natalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: Why not go online and find a sugar daddy --- a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates and even give her a monthly allowance? Lots of girls do it, Nat learns. All that’s required is to look pretty and hang on his every word. Sexual favors are optional.

Though more than 30 years her senior, Gabe, a handsome corporate finance attorney, seems like the perfect candidate. Within a month, they are madly in love. At least Nat is. Gabe already has a family and has no intention of leaving them.

So when he abruptly ends things, Nat can’t let go. She begins drinking heavily and stalking him: watching him at work, spying on his wife, even befriending his daughter, who is not much younger than she is. But Gabe is not about to let his sugar baby destroy his perfect life. What was supposed to be a mutually beneficial arrangement devolves into a nightmare of deception, obsession and, when a body is found near Gabe’s posh Upper East Side apartment, murder.

Emotionally powerful and packed with page-turning suspense, THE ARRANGEMENT is a “nightmarish deep dive into the underbelly of a secret world” (Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author).
