Blood Orange

Blood Orange Review

An electrifying debut thriller for fans of Anatomy of a Scandal, Apple Tree Yard, and Gone Girl.

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....

A disturbing, toxic and compelling novel that explores the power of fear and desire, jealousy and betrayal, love and hate, BLOOD ORANGE introduces a stunning new voice in psychological suspense.

    Great book by a debut author! I had a hard time putting it down. It all seemed so cut and dried at the beginning (Carl was the nice cuckolded husband and Alison was awful for cheating on him.) I was i...

    I received an ARC of this at Bouchercon. I’m normally a romance reader (and writer), but I enjoy a good thriller. This exceeded expectations and I read it over a 24-hour period. It was edgy, tense a...

    Not one for me. I didn't get this book at all, sorry! Hateful characters (but that's the point given the story I know) but I guess I'm just tired of stories where one of the characters drinks to obliv...

    Alison has the seemingly perfect life, but appearances can be deceiving.Oh my goodness. What a debut from Harriet Tyce. If I’m honest, I was expecting a competent and interesting read. I hadn’t qu...
