Take a walk on the wild side of webcam culture . . .
Cisco's tired of being a temp, her brother's convinced that being a teen agony uncle has a shelf life, while her man of the moment is lost to an online game with a million bucks at stake.
That's when their landlord, a property impresario called Cartier, tables an offer they can't refuse: transform the place into a virtual show home, with a cam in every room, the three can stay on rent-free. Except Cartier has a hidden agenda, and privacy comes at a price.
Praise for Columbia Road:
Whyman's deceptively flippant style masks an interesting take on the London flatshare genre, and a serious, if funny, comment on the downside of webcam mania. Fantastic second novel from the agony-uncle-turned-novelist.
