Every woman wants to be wanted. Just not by the Metropolitan police… A fabulously funny romp from the one and only Kathy Lette.

Every woman wants to be wanted. Just not by the Metropolitan police…

Washed up in London and trying her best to raise her new-born son alone, Madeleine Wolfe is looking forward to taking her mind off things with some retail therapy - even if her budget stretches to prunes rather than Prada. But her day out takes an unexpected turn for the worse when she is mistakenly arrested in Harrods for shoplifting…

Detained with baby Jack in Holloway Prison’s Mother and Baby Unit, there’s only one man Maddy can turn to for help clearing her name: the father of her baby and ex-lover Alex.

Things have been bumpy between Maddy and Alex to say the least – there’s the wife and children he omitted to mention for starters. He’s also in the middle of launching his political career and needs to protect his wholesome image. But he won’t let Maddy down when she needs him most… will he?

About the Author

Kathy Lette

Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an inimitable take on serious current issues. She is one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism, paving the way for Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham.

She first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series. After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband - and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth. She is known for her regular appearances on BBC and Sky news programmes. She is an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International, the White Ribbon Alliance and the NAS.

Kathy Lette lives in London, and can often be found at The Savoy drinking a cocktail named after her. Kathy is an autodidact (a word she taught herself) but in 2010, received an honorary doctorate from Southampton Solent University.
