A LESSON IN CRUELTY, the jaw-dropping new thriller from bestselling author Harriet Tyce is available to pre-order now.

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….

Sarah Pinborough, #1 bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES
Harriet Tyce brings a new layer of visceral, addictive dark to domestic noir. Obsession, revenge, lust and murder play out on the pages as a female barrister tries to hold her life together while her personality tries to tear it apart. At once shocking and riveting, I simply couldn't stop reading. Bravo
Clare Mackintosh, #1 bestselling author of I SEE YOU
A classy thriller with complex and compelling characters
Veronica Henry
A deeply flawed but relatable heroine who makes the mistakes we all dread making ... I devoured it with white knuckles. Vivid, deft storytelling that holds a knife to your throat all the way through and makes your blood curdle. Coruscating!
Melanie McGrath
So dark and compelling. It deserves to fly off the shelves.
