When a rich man you never knew dies and his opulent apartment is left to you, you’d think it was the answer to your dreams. But perhaps it is the start of a living nightmare…a sharp, intelligent and dark tale from the creator of hit series SMASH.
Possession is nine-tenths of the law. Or is it?
Tina Finn was standing at the edge of her mother's newly-dug grave when she first heard about her inheritance. Until this moment she'd been scraping by, living from one pay cheque to the next. But all that was about to change…
Now she's the proud owner of a huge luxury apartment overlooking Central Park. Things couldn't get much better, right? Wrong. Her half brothers, left out of the inheritance, think that she has no right to the apartment and they want her out - by any means necessary.
So that's how Tina went from standing on the edge of her mother's grave to squatting in a twelve room apartment in the centre of New York. Now she has it all, is she prepared to fight to the end to keep it?

Praise for ‘Three Girls and their Brother’:
‘Both dark and comic’
‘Rebeck shines…her insiders look at the theatre world is spot on and uproarious…crackling satire and scene stealing secondaries carry the book’
US Publishers Weekly
‘Playwright Rebeck’s first novel is a wickedly enjoyable exposé of modern celebrity…Rebeck’s dramatic skills are evident in the youthful, often profane voices…A timely and entertaining modern morality tale.’
‘“Three Girls and their Brother” is a brilliant fiction debut. Rebeck weaves such an atmosphere of excitement and turmoil. I felt genuinely close to these characters – all three sisters and their brother. The insider’s look at the life of young models and the way instant success can upend everything resonates in hilarious and heart-breaking ways. I found it impossible to put this book down.” Carol Goodman, Author of ‘The Lake of Dead Languages’
