Book Description

14 Jun 2007

It's the hottest new night club . . .


Jenna Lorde knows she's taking on a challenge when she inherits her dad's nightclub.

But Zenith comes with a top class reputation and a location other clubs would kill for, so she reckons she's more than up for it. Until she starts to realise that the dangers aren't just from other clubs.

Beneath the glamour of the VIP lounge and the pumping music, sleaze and corruption are starting to creep in, and it'll take all Jenna's cunning to stop the rot. The club's survival - and her own - depend on it ...

Product Description


'Move over Martina Cole, Mandasue Heller is here. Can't wait for her next book' (**** Amazon review)

'Gritty, contemporary, inner-city drama' (Bookseller)

Mandasue has played a real blinder with this fantastic novel. (Martina Cole on FORGET ME NOT)

Cracking page-turner . . . a gritty compassionate account of life on the margins. (Manchester Evening News on FORGET ME NOT)

Alarming and beguiling . . . curiously exhilarating. (Scotsman on THE FRONT)

A hard-hitting tale of sex, drugs and guest lists . . . things turn from glamorous to dangerous. (Marie Claire)

Gripping . . . powerful writing. (Scotland on Sunday on FORGET ME NOT)

A glamorous nightclub hides a seedy underworld that Heller knows only too well. (Express)

A sassy take on the usual crime thriller ... a slick page-turner. (Woman magazine)

Sexy and slick (Look)

Another excellent read from Mandasue Heller (Linnet Hooper, Waterstone's Books Quaterly)

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute mince! What's happened to Mandasue? 11 Mar 2009
By DebzM
This wasn't as bad as The Charmer but still drivel.
The main character was unlikeable, naive, irritating and boring and as for the Dj fancying her, how cheesy was that.
I enjoyed Tainted Lives, Forget me Not and The Front immensely but this was a total let down, there's no storyline, no plot and the ending was dull and unrealistic.

2.0 out of 5 stars boring sorry but could of made it much better 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very boring and poor story line! A 12 year old could of written it, the ending was probably the best part but could of been so much better given the story line, not gripping at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Promising start, disappointing end 28 Sep 2013
I first bread Heller's "Broke" which was a gripping, dark and gritty piece. I picked up "the club" and Heller's style is instantly recognisable, but the book itself is tamer, to the point that Heller removes the most dramatic scene of the story from it completely, leaving you underwhelmed and slightly annoyed.

The main character is dull and the villain is kind of dumb too. I liked the characters Melody and Leonard as I thought they were more interesting and they actually developed through the story.

The club is ok and starts with a promising idea, but falls down about half way through when the build up of the first half offers only a mediocre return.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED 3 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am disappointed with this book I am half way through it and I am still wondering when the story is about to begin, I will carry on and finish the book and hope that the story appears in the second half. I have enjoyed Mandasue Hellers other books but so far I am finding this one hard going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 27 Mar 2010
This is only the second of Mandasue Heller's books which i have read, but certainly wont be the last! In fact, i just finished and can't wait to pick me up another one. Although i did predict somethings which were going to happen it didnt spoil it for me as i was just as intrigued to find out how things were going to turn out. Was surprised by the ending, and realise it didn't have the gorey climax which Martina Cole has but don't think it was necessary. Really enjoyed the characters created and hope we see more of Jenna and Vibes one day :)!

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn 19 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just couldn't get into this book, and found after a couple of days I was avoiding picking up my kindle to continue reading. Very amateur writing, and no empathy with the main characters - they all need a good shake!
