‘Outrageous, clever, funny, poignant. Helen Fitzgerald really is one to watch.’ Mo Hayder
Perfect for fans of Julia Crouch, Sophie Hannah and Laura Lippman, Dead Lovely is a debut novel, a fast-paced thriller and a dark, enthralling examination of friendship. Helen FitzGerald’s other books include The Cry, The Exit, My Last Confession and The Donor.
Wayward Krissie is an unwilling single mum; unhappily married Sarah aches for a baby, When they go hiking in the Highlands their festering resentments erupt into adultary, weird sex and madness (souds like the best holiday ever to us). Great fun and oddly moving.
'Chatty and casual ... this has the bounding hop of a piece of chick-lit, unexpectedly coupled with dark comedy.'
