A funny, compulsive read about family dysfuction and the media’s obsession with murder.
This smart revenge comedy is told through the eyes of the Villanelle-esque anti-hero Grace Bernard… Chilling, but also laugh-out-loud funny. Another corker of a debut.
I’ve struggled to recover my reading mojo since lockdown. This turned out to be the thing that sparked it back to life… Funny, sharp, dark and twisted, Grace is a character I found myself rooting for even as she committed the most vile misdeeds.
Ironic twists and caustic commentary on everything from liberal guilt to the consumerist con that is “selfcare” sharpen this debut novel.
You’ll be gripped… Grace’s emotional detachment throughout will give you chills.
Bella Mackie’s debut novel is by turns pitch-dark and laugh-out-loud funny, with an outrageous final twist.
Original, funny, unique and such a refreshing read.
Addictive… one of the most intriguing and bewitching protagonists I've read in years
Witty, waspish satire of a murderer with no regrets.
