Molly has woken up with a hangover and a strange man in her bed. She soon learns that she’s trending on social media for a video of her performing a sex act in the street. As she stumbles through the horrible day, she finds Posey, her best friend and roommate, dead in the bathtub. The police determine that it’s an accident, but the more she investigates, the more she’s convinced it isn’t. But that video means her credibility is shot, so she needs to get real proof.

Brent also wrote How to Kill Men and Get Away with It, which I found over the top and unnecessarily gruesome. This one is more plausible (and lacks the graphic violence), but still a bit uneven in character development, though it’s a fast-paced read. I think Brent has something to say about violence against women–as well as the ways women are doubted and underestimated–and if she brings those sensibilities and the same wry tone, I expect some entertaining and impactful books in the future.
