May 2011 Book of the Month.

CWA Gold Dagger Finalist 2010.

Set in an isolated and isolating community, this is a children-in-peril narrative with a powerful twist. An outstanding British thriller from a new star of the genre - as creepy as Karin Slaughter, as addictive as Tess Gerritsen, but in a league of her own.

If you like S. J. Bolton you might also like to read books by Patricia Cornwell, Tess Gerritsen and Neil White.

Reviews

Bolton knows precisely how to ratchet up the tension and tell a cracking story * Guardian * Bolton has already made a considerable name for herself with her well-crafted, original and spooky crime thrillers * Daily Mail * Frisson-generating... dark, psychological crime * Independent * Blood Harvest is the book I wish I could have written. Heart-stopping, bone-chilling, and deliciously written. S.J. Bolton is a thriller star -- CHELSEA CAIN Bolton excels... a mystery that twines its way to the secretive, rotten heart of the village * Observer *
