Summary

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

Alison has it all. A doting husband, an 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.

Superior Thriller well narrated

I thoroughly enjoyed this book it is very very clever and has a great twist. This is a complex story exploring the darker side of human nature and I so enjoyed this listen that I resented any interruptions ! and heard it all over one weekend. Both of the main characters are really well depicted and though hard to like in the beginning evolved into complex interesting characters. I can't wait for Harriet Tyce's next book.

Blood Orange

Kept me completely engrossed from beginning to end. Some thoroughly un-likeable characters but a good story, well read.

It’s good, but not great!

This book somehow missed the mark for me. It is difficult to pinpoint why. It is a reasonable story. Perhaps it is because there are no average responses or interactions. Every moment, with every character is extreme in some way.

The narration is accurate, and read with appropriate emphasis etc. One star is lost for her only because her voice did not work for me.

Very good. Interesting.

I couldn't really expect the ending or the moral of the story right until the very end so that was good for me. I hate predictable story's but this wasn't, so thumbs up for me.

Really enjoyed this

Graphic and brave storytelling with complex and believable characters, shockingly real in its portrayal of lives out of control. Nice level of complexity to the plot.
