Rate this:

When Lou McCartney, fashion reporter on The Post, finds out that her estranged half-sister Scarlett has gone missing in Japan, she's left guilt-ridden and reeling. Lou and Scarlett have been estranged since Lou's father dumped her mother for a younger model, and Scarlett was catapulted to fame as a child model.

Ten years later Scarlett's career has stalled. In a desperate bid for work, Scarlett decamps to Tokyo, the toughest assignment in the already tough world of international modelling. And then she vanishes.

Faced with Scarlett's disappearance, Lou turns to her best friend, Annie Anderson. A former investigative reporter Annie now works for the fashion bible, Handbag magazine. Giving Lou's knowledge of the fashion world and Annie's nose for trouble, it's only a matter of time before they begin chasing down what really happened to Scarlett. It's a dangerous hunt. One that forces Lou to face up to her past, and takes Annie from London to New York and Tokyo.

In the hard-nosed world of modelling, sometimes the best look is the one that lets you come out of it alive...
