The Understudy

book | 2005
World → Hodder and Stoughton

For Josh Harper, being in show-business means money, fame, a beautiful wife, and a lead role on the London stage. For Stephen C McQueen, it means a disastrous career playing passers-by and dead people.

Stephen's stuck with an unfortunate name, a hopeless agent, a daughter he barely knows, and a job as understudy to Josh Harper, the 12th Sexiest Man in the World. And when Stephen falls in love with Josh's clever, funny wife Nora, things get even more difficult.

But might there yet be a way for Stephen to get his Big Break?
