FIERCE, UNFLINCHING AND PROVOCATIVE, BLOOD ORANGE WILL HOLD YOU IN ITS GRIP UNTIL ITS FINAL, HEARTSTOPPING CONCLUSION.

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....

    I have ADHD and this has been my first ever book I read from front to back. My friend knows what type of movies I like to recommended this book. Absolutely brilliant! Each chapter was gripping. The twists and turns were amazing. It’s not started my love for reading and for that I’m grateful!

    I loved and hated this book in equal measures. Loved the style of writing and the plot, but boy were the characters despicable . Excellent debut novel from this author.

    I really loved this book. I cancelled my plans just to finish it! I found I really warmed to the main character Alison despite all the bad things she seemed to be doing. Can’t wait for the next book

    Not a bad read but not one I’d recommend. Read it quite quickly, disappointed with the ending.

    I absolutely loved this book! I’m a prolific reader and this is the best I’ve read in a very long time, beautifully written and a real noir thriller! I literally couldn’t put it down, alternately dying to finish it, but not wanting not to be able to read it any more! If this is her debut, I can’t wait to see the next from Harriet Tyce, I’m only sorry that there’s not another ready to dive into.

    Not a bad read. I definitely wanted to finish it , one of those books that you can read in a day . But plot is somewhat predictable. Good holiday read
