Blood Orange The gripping Richard & Judy bookclub thriller Synopsis

'Harriet Tyce brings a new layer of visceral, addictive dark to domestic noir... At once shocking and riveting, I simply couldn't stop reading. Bravo' Sarah Pinborough AN ELECTRIFYING DEBUT THRILLER FOR FANS OF APPLE TREE YARD AND ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL - INTRODUCING A STUNNING NEW VOICE IN PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE Alison has it all. A doting husband, adorable daughter, and a career on the rise - she's just been given her first murder case to defend. But all is never as it seems... Just one more night. Then I'll end it. Alison drinks too much. She's neglecting her family. And she's having an affair with a colleague whose taste for pushing boundaries may be more than she can handle. I did it. I killed him. I should be locked up. Alison's client doesn't deny that she stabbed her husband - she wants to plead guilty. And yet something about her story is deeply amiss. Saving this woman may be the first step to Alison saving herself. I'm watching you. I know what you're doing. But someone knows Alison's secrets. Someone who wants to make her pay for what she's done, and who won't stop until she's lost everything.... PRAISE FOR BLOOD ORANGE: 'A classy thriller with complex and compelling characters' Clare Mackintosh 'A dark and disturbing domestic noir' Louise Jensen 'Combines sharp spare prose with a gloriously twisted plot - I read this in one heart-pounding, furiously angry sitting' Emma Flint
