It’s not often you come across a thriller that is as funny as it is scary but here is such a book with the title a slight give away to the tone. When Cat tries to settle her pre-wedding nerves by sleeping with her ex boyfriends her risk taking solution lands her in a lot more trouble than she could ever have imagined when they all turn up dead and she is the main suspect. A brilliant addition to the genre.

If you like Helen FitzGerald you might also like to read books by Simon Lelic, Louise Welsh and Daniel Clay.

Reviews

'A delight to find something new ... funny, moving, horrifying and compelling'
Times Literary Supplement



'FitzGerald ... is adept at arresting openings, tense cliffhangers and tumultuous climaxes'
The Herald

'Bloody Women is delicious, ingenious, inventive and mordantly funny. Helen FitzGerald has a real skill for making the totally absurd and goofy, thoroughly logical and reasonable.'
Big Beat from Badsville
