About the Book

A tense, twisty novel about race, power, betrayal, survival – and an addiction so compelling it threatens to destroy everything in its path

‘A fresh, exhilarating voice’ Adele Parks

‘Impossible to put down’ Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City

Etta believes she was born lucky. She believes that if she can save enough money, she and Ola can finally marry and buy a home. Willing to chance it all, she quietly begins to make money on an online gambling site – until she begins losing. Soon she has secretly lost their entire savings. Luckily, Etta has made a friend on the site, a friend who has recently won big. Perhaps she can persuade him to give her a loan, just until she wins the money back. What could possibly go wrong?

Lucky is about chance, fortune and twists of fate. It examines societal factors that can turn lives upside down: from the increasingly popular online gambling to migration and the movement of people. Ultimately, Lucky is a book that examines the risks we all take to survive.

This deep dive into gambling addiction packs a huge emotional punch. I devoured it’ Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said 

‘Unbelievably tense and twisty – I loved it' Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request 

‘Timely, absorbing, unsettling and unflinching, with a dark, knowing wit. I’ve been thinking about it for days and I’ll be recommending it to everyone’ Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies
