A stunning debut - part psychological thriller, part detective novel - from a powerful and distinctive new voice. The murder of a first-year university student shocks the city of Durham.

The victim, Emily Brabents, was from the privileged and popular set at Joyce College, a cradle for the country's future elite. As Detective Inspector Erica Martin investigates the college, she finds a close-knit community fuelled by jealousy, obsession and secrets.

But the very last thing she expects is an instant confession . . . The picture of Emily that begins to emerge is that of a girl wanted by everyone, but not truly known by anyone.

Anyone, that is, except Daniel Shepherd. Her fellow student, ever-faithful friend and the only one who cares.

The only one who would do anything for her . . . Praise for Bitter Fruits:'There is a gripping, economic precision in this highly charged thriller.'Ralph Fiennes'Grabbed me from the first page and wouldn't let go.
