Till death do us part…

After leaving her marriage to jealous, possessive oncologist Maxwell, Lily and her six-year-old son have a second chance at happiness with headteacher Sebastian. Kind but vulnerable, Sebastian is the polar opposite of Maxwell, and the perfect match for Lily. After a whirlwind romance, they marry, and that’s when things start to go wrong…

Maxwell returns to the scene, determined to win back his family, and events soon spiral out of control. Lily and Sebastian find themselves not only fighting for their relationship, but also their lives…

Chilling, dark and terrifying, Do No Harm is a taut psychological thriller and a study of obsession, from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.

With the emphasis on thriller in the psychological thriller/domestic noir category, Lucy Hay has written another corker. Full of crackling tension that jumps off the page.

If I still bit my nails, they’d be chewed down to the stump reading this book. It’s that kind of mesmerising, addictive what-the-hell-is-going-to-happen-next kind of book.

A real page turner with some complex creepy characters that left me wondering who anyone was and who do I trust.

A twisty tale of love, suspicion, revenge and a dark suffocating obsession that threatens to destroy everyone caught up in it and all they hold dear.

Another masterpiece from the Orenda Publishing stable where they foster and nurture some amazingly talented authors.

With thanks to Anne Cater and Orenda books for my ARC copy that was a real privilege to read
