Description

Gossip Girl but make it royal – a Black LGBTQ+ royal reimagining full of scandalous secrets, rollercoaster romances and one hell of a mystery.

‘Scandalous, funny and deliciously compelling!’ Catherine Doyle, co-author of Twin Crowns
 
James has been a prince all his life, and since he was born, he’s been thrust into the spotlight as the first Black heir to the throne. But when his father dies unexpectedly, James is crowned king at the tender age of seventeen, and his life irrevocably changes. 
 
When James’ boyfriend suddenly goes missing, threatening envelopes appear in the palace, and gossip and scandals that only he knows are leaked to the public. As the anonymous informant continues to expose every last skeleton in the royal closet, James realises even those in his inner circle can’t be trusted.

Advance Praise

‘A scandalous, twisty mystery that had me on the edge of my seat gasping for more, right until the end of the last page.’

Kate Weston, author of Diary of a Confused Feminist


‘THE KING IS DEAD is a compelling thriller that deftly explores British racism and homophobia while delivering twists that punch you in the gut. Brilliantly tense and claustrophobic - keeps you guessing until the final pages and stays with you long after you’ve finished reading. Trust no one!’

Kathryn Foxfield, author of Good Girls Die First


‘A delicious royal mystery’ and ‘Highly original in its exploration of race and power’
