The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones in this chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong …

Some love affairs change you forever. Someone comes into your orbit and swivels you on your axis, like the wind working on a rooftop weather vane. And when they leave, as the wind always does, you are different; you have a new direction. And it’s not always north.’

Any woman who’s ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped will understand what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted and bent on revenge.

Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry and wants to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her: ‘Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he’d slowly dissembled … stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.’

So Taylor consults The Art of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step – one that will change her life forever.

Things start to spiral out of her control – and The Sunday Girl becomes impossible to put down.

    The Sunday Girl is the first novel by Australian/African raised writer, actor and musician, Pip Drysdale. Taylor Bishop is in a relationship with a psychopath. She hasn't fully realised it yet, despite warnings from her mother and her best friend Charlotte, but Angus Hollingsworth, for all his good looks, wealth and charm, is not good for her.

    But they have an acrimonious split and he does something unforgivable: the sex video she never wanted to make has appeared online. And then takes his previous ex on the ski holiday he and Taylor had planned together.

    It's when Taylor is meting out some carefully planned revenge that she discovers some disturbing facts about Angus. Yet when he returns begging forgiveness, she eventually capitulates. Soon enough, though, she understands what this man is really like, and realises the danger that staying with Angus presents. Dare she leave? And how will she do this without reprisals?

    While Drysdale’s plot (woman in toxic relationship) has been used many times, her execution of it is excellent, making sure the reader is kept guessing until the jaw-dropping final turn. Taylor may come across as rather naive but her situation doesn't require a great deal of suspension of disbelief, and the technology involved is all too believable. An impressive debut novel
