A superstar actor with a lifetime of grudges against the tabloids turns the tables on the media’s most ruthless journalists.
THE DAILY EAR is the world’s most infamous tabloid newspaper with an unparalleled reputation for exposing the private lives of the rich and famous. Feared by celebrities and politicians alike, it has left a trail of shattered lives in its wake. But reporters have secrets too.
And what better way for TV golden boy Adam Jaymes to reap revenge than to do to the staff at the Daily Ear what they’ve been doing to everyone else for decades?
Exposé is a satirical thriller that takes readers into the murky world of the UK’s No1 daily paper, as Jaymes wages a very public war on the tabloid’s star journalists and exposes their shameful secrets for all to see.
Touching on dozens of real-life scandals, the novel will keep you guessing who is next on Jaymes’ hit list and what deep, dark secret he is about to expose.
THEGAYUK: “Brilliantly observed and devilishly demanding, Ilett’s debut is a can’t-put-it-down riot. A triumph for the first-time novelist”
THE SUN: “There are plenty of unsavoury characters but they’re still quite likeable at the same time, which is down to the great writing. A fantastic debut from a former journalist”
ATTITUDE MAGAZINE: “Exposé is a timely tale of tabloid culture – sure to appeal to celebrity readers especially”
“Great Read! Highly recommend this book!!!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Brian G
I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me a lot of Augustine Burroughs’ Sellevision. Anyone who has even slightly followed any celebrity scandal, tabloid expose or even watched TMZ will enjoy this book. The story is paced very well and the author makes all the characters sympathetic; there are no true villains or heroes.
