You'd die for your best friend... But would you kill for her? 'This is not the usual story of vulnerable women in jeopardy ... but one in which the victims fight back.' SUNDAY TIMES 'Oh, my, can this author write women!' NEW YORK TIMES ____________________ Some women just can't take a joke. At least, that's what locals tell the police when a man is found gruesomely murdered at the pub in a tiny outback town. All fingers point to the backpackers working behind the bar that night - sorority sisters Beth and Lauren, who skipped town before the body was discovered. Despite all the evidence against them, rookie cop Tara Harrison knows there must be more to this case. But even as she tries to prove their innocence, Tara discovers that Beth and Lauren have dark secrets of their own - secrets they've sworn to take to the grave... Sun-drenched, suspenseful and addictive, with a cast of fierce, unforgettable women, Blood Sisters is the irresistible must-read of Summer 2022. Perfect for fans of Jane Harper, Liane Moriarty and Taylor Jenkins-Reid. ____________________ *BEST CRIME BOOKS OF 2022 - SUNDAY TIMES* *PICK OF THE WEEK - THE TIMES CRIME CLUB* *BOOK OF THE WEEK - HEAT MAGAZINE* *BOOK OF THE WEEK - BELFAST TELEGRAPH* ____________________ 'Just sensational.' CRIME MONTHLY 'This superb slice of Aussie noir isn't just a fantastic whodunnit, it also shines a light on some important themes. We couldn't get enough of the atmospheric setting and pitch-perfect writing.' HEAT 'Layer upon layer of plot twists ... My only sadness was that I couldn't read it in one go.' BELFAST TELEGRAPH 'A well-researched, page-turning story with characters to root for and some seriously good misdirection. This is excellent outback noir.' EMMA STYLES 'A blisteringly good book. Compulsive, brilliant, atmospheric, and with serious emotional clout. These characters didn't just jump off the page: they pulled me into it. An absolute five star read.' GYTHA LODGE 'Atmospheric and brooding, this gripping police procedural opened my eyes to modern-day exploitation in outback Australia. Tara is a smart heroine I'd love to read much more of.' ED JAMES 'A bloody good (and indeed bloody) story of suspense and mystery.' MORNING STAR ____________________ 'Beth and Lauren are backpackers from California who have run out of money in Western Australia. When they take jobs in a seedy outback bar whose owner hires girls to attract custom from a mining company, they become targets of a group of thuggish men. This is not the usual story of vulnerable women in jeopardy, however, but one in which the victims fight back.'
