'One of the bad girls of gritty crime' Daily Mirror
Larry Logan is a small-time TV star with a mile-wide ego. Gutted when his latest show is axed, he's less than impressed when the only work he can get is fronting a fake game show - actually an undercover police sting to entrap criminals.
His reluctance evaporates when the show rockets his career back to prime time stardom. And when lovely, shy Stephanie enters his life he thinks he finally has it made.
But Larry doesn't know how dangerous those criminals are. He has shafted some dangerous men - and they want revenge.

In Heller's wonderfully wicked revenge thriller, British TV host Larry Logan loses his job after he performs drunk on a children's charity telethon and, in an even dumber move, has a boozy fling with a 16-year-old female fan . Two years later, a desperate Larry agrees to host fake game show Gotcha! for American TV that's actually a police sting operation to catch real British felons, including notorious bail jumper Derek "Dex" Lewis. Manchester Insp. Bill Keeton persuades Larry to schmooze the slippery crook to lure him to the fake set. After the cops bust him, Dex vows vengeance, as does his teen daughter Molly, mom Nora, brother Patrick and ex-wife, Jane. Meanwhile, Dex's disgruntled girlfriend concocts a scheme to score secret payback. Suspense intersects brilliantly with savage pop culture satire as Heller (The Club) reveals just how twisted life can be when it connects with crimes of the head and heart.
