A stunning debut that follows one young woman's search for her missing sister as she is drawn into the world of escorts and prostitution. Meticulously researched, Fishnet is a landmark novel from one of the UK's most exciting new authors. Fiona works for a construction company in a job she hates. By night she searches for her missing sister, Rona, who disappeared many years before. A chance meeting draws Fiona into the murky world of the sex industry. When a local sex workers' refuge is threatened with closure because of a property development Fiona herself is working on, she forms an unlikely alliance that will challenge every preconception she had about the industry, challenging her to face the secrets of the past, re-examine her relationship with her lost sister and propelling her towards changing her life forever.
