Publisher Description

She thinks love can kill you. It turns out she might be right. The dark and sexy new thriller from the bestselling author of The Sunday Girl and The Strangers We Know. 

Harper Brown is an expert at picking locks, breaking her way out of car boots, talking her way out of trouble and she could run a masterclass on escaping relationships - her record for losing a guy is three minutes flat. She’s addicted to true crime podcasts and is the genius behind a micro-column called ‘How to not get murdered’.

After having her heart broken helping her ex follow his dreams, Harper has moved to Paris to fulfill hers. She’s talked her way into a job as an arts journalist, a stepping stone to her dream role as an investigative journalist. All she has to do is whatever it takes to get there. But then one night she meets the artist Noah X, and everything she thinks she knows is turned upside down.

Soon Harper finds herself entangled in a web of lies, hot on the trail of a murderer and the scoop of a lifetime. This is the story that could make her career - if the killer doesn’t catch her first.

'The tension and pace escalate . . . and all the red-herrings and breadcrumbs subtly dropped along the journey coalesce, delivering a gripping conclusion. An entertaining tale of mystery and suspense' Booklover

'The Paris Affair is not a simple whodunnit, nor a mere romance, nor is it a run-of-the-mill book about a young woman in Paris. Pip Drysdale has very cleverly turned these situations on their heads . . . showing us the complexities of love, sex, and romance' Glam Adelaide

'An entertaining crime thriller recommended for fans of savvy characters, art, journalism and all things Parisian.' Carpe Librum

Good story with interesting twists.

Great read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was written in such a way that it flowed throughout the relatively short chapters & didn’t seem contrived to a formula at all. I loved Harriet/Grace, the main character, so down to earth, a friend you would wish for & her thoughts & words just incredibly real. I have to admit I didn’t work out the culprit till the end so in my opinion that says a lot. Will be looking for other books this author has written & hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Superb writing skills and enticing story!

I loved this book so much. From the character development, to the thriller storyline, to the way the twists were written... all of it was just perfect in my opinion. Nothing was predictable, yet everything had a place. I fell in love with the main character and I felt her unapologetic nature really refreshing; it felt real and not manufactured to be written as an ‘unapologetic girl in Paris’. I just bought the other two books by Pip Drysdale, and I’m starting as soon as I hit send on this review. You’ve got yourself a fan, Pip!
