When we bury our secrets, they always come back to haunt us…
Their rise was meteoric.
Only a few years before, they had been three friends from Glasgow, just trying to survive tough lives of danger and dysfunction.
But on one Hollywood evening in 1993, they were on the world’s biggest stage, accepting their Oscar in front of the watching world.
That night was the beginning of their careers. But it was also the end of their friendship.
Over the next twenty years, Mirren McLean would become one of the most powerful writers in the movie industry.
Zander Leith would break box-office records as cinema’s most in-demand action hero.
And Davie Johnson would rake in millions as producer of some of the biggest shows on TV.
For two decades they didn’t speak, driven apart by a horrific secret.
Their past is coming back to bite them, and they have to decide whether to run, hide, or fight.
Because when you rise to the top, there’s always someone who wants to see you fall.
An exciting new glam thriller for the fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Liane Moriarty and Jo Spain
The Rise made me wish I was on the beach reading! This would be a perfect book for that. This book is a good thriller with a lot of interesting aspects. A Hollywood scandal, a wild secret, an intriguing cast of characters… I really enjoyed this!
I liked the twists and turns. This book is on the longer side, but that isn’t a negative. I really enjoyed how invested I was throughout the story.
This doesn’t really impact my rating, but I am obsessed with this cover!
Anyway, The Rise was a really good read. I enjoyed my time inside this story. It was intriguing and kept me interested the entire time. I recommend giving it a read.
