MOTHER... FRIEND... POISONER?

A young mother is accused of attempting to poison her own child. Ellie is secretive and challenging – she's had a troubled life – but does that mean she's capable of murder?

Criminal defence lawyer Sarah Kellerman is tasked with proving Ellie's innocence. But Sarah's desperate pursuit of the truth will draw her – and her five-year-old son – into unimaginable danger...

Unsettling and compulsive, In the Blood is a chilling study of class, motherhood and power from a new star in crime fiction.

'A tense legal thriller set against the pressures of single motherhood, In the Blood is deeply authentic, tightly plotted and beautifully written. I can't wait for the next in the series' HARRIET TYCE.

'I tore through it once I'd started. A fantastic thriller that grips you from the first page and doesn't let go until the explosive finish. Brilliant' JENNY BLACKHURST.

'If you loved Apple Tree Yard, you'll love In the Blood. Totally gripping and compelling' SARAH FLINT.

'This creeping, disquieting story had me guessing until the rollercoaster end' LESLEY THOMSON.

3* story, 5* writing

I gave an average of 4* for a good but occasionally implausible story which was written in an easy to read and compelling way.
Was the narrative helped by being in the present tense? I don’t think so and, while on the whole I did get used to it, there were numerous occasions when it seemed clumsy and jarred on me.
I did want to know what the outcome would be and to see if my guesses were correct so, overall, it was a good, quick and easy read.
