Today I have a review of Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce, now available from Grand Central Pub! Thanks to Grand Central for the invitation! Please make sure to read all the way to the bottom for your chance to win a copy!
Everyone wants what Alison has. A successful job as a defense attorney, a loving husband, and a precious daughter. She’s recently been assigned her first murder case. That’s all on the surface though.
The truth is Alison abuses alcohol and doesn’t spend enough time with her family. She’s also having an affair with someone who has some issues of his own.
Alison’s newest client stabbed her husband and readily admits it. She tells Alison she wants to plead guilty and get the trial behind her.
But something isn’t right about the client’s story.
And Alison’s secrets seem to be known by someone close to her, but she doesn’t know who.
Blood Orange is a dark, twisted, twisty thriller. I felt like a voyeur when I read about Alison’s complicated, complex life. Put all the vices out there, and Alison has them all and then some, but only one person seems to know the truth about her. When will her house of cards come tumbling down, and what will be at the root of it?
Part character study, part legal thriller, all psychological thriller, Blood Orange is a tense, gritty story that compelled me to read it quickly and left my head swirling (even more than just spinning).
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
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.
