“The moment of betrayal is the worst, the moment when you know beyond any doubt that you’ve been betrayed: that some other human being has wished you that much evil” ― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

Heather and Carla haven’t seen each other in years. Carla lives a down and out hand-to-mouth existence while Heather looks like she has it all. During an unexpected catch up, Heather presents Carla with a bag of money and a deadly proposition.

But what seems at first like a straightforward arrangement is just the first twist in a tightening spiral that will pull them both in. At once thrilling and darkly funny, The Wasp is a sharp reminder that if you don’t deal with your past you should expect it to deal with you.

‘sharply comic… makes the deranged and unreasonable suddenly seem frighteningly reasonable’ — The Guardian
