Orchids, champagne, and famous name cards adorn the deck, while tensions simmer beneath the surface. Through the lens of an unreliable English tutor, Queen K unveils the power dynamics within an extraordinary family, their once-protected haven threatened by encroaching world politics. Sarah Thomas weaves a tale of opulence, resentment, and intrigue, creating a world where acceptance comes at a cost. Reviews'Beautifully crafted and compelling. Thomas perfectly captures the textures of entitlement and the inner workings of Russian plutocratic life lived between Moscow and Europe's glamour resorts' - Caroline Knowles, author of Serious Money'Thrilling, revealing and disturbing, Queen K dives deep into the hidden lives of the mega-rich, the dark structures of privilege and power, and the lies we tell ourselves to keep the illusion afloat. Thomas knows her subject inside out and it shows - her dazzling debut is both a gripping mystery and a relevant treatise on the dangers of wealth without limits' - Emma Stonex, author of The Lamplighters'A wry, unsettling take on privilege, avarice and corruption. This book pulls back the curtain on the lives of the ultra-rich and reveals a world fatally distorted by greed and arrogance; it navigates questions of class and complicity with a rare deftness' - Keiran Goddard, author of Hourglass.
