If you know the pod then you know that Jessica Marie has her background in the Romance genre and Laura Marie has her background in Historical Fiction. These two genres, both alike in dignity, are front and center in this Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920's Shanghai. Rival gangs and the enduring blood feud have put Roma and Juliette on different sides but leave it to children to become friends anyway. Growing up is hard, but when you're both the heir to your gang it's even harder. Throw in a mysterious monster and a madness that is infecting everyone and the scene is set for a glittering noir detective story first, love story second. The Lover and the Liar.
TW / CW: bugs! (yeah, we didn't think we'd need it either)
