‘I loved this book’ – RICHARD OSMAN

‘An antiheroine able to best villainous male protagonists such as Patrick Bateman any day’ – OBSERVER

‘Chilling, but also laugh-out-loud funny. Another corker’ – SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

They say you can’t choose your family. But you can kill them.

Meet Grace Bernard. Daughter, sister, serial killer…When Grace Bernard discovers her absentee millionaire father has rejected her dying mother’s pleas for help, she vows revenge, and sets about to kill every member of his family.

Readers have a front row seat as Grace picks off the family one by one – and the result is as and gruesome as it is entertaining in this wickedly dark romp about class, family, love… and murder.

But then Grace is imprisoned for a murder she didn’t commit.

Outrageously funny, compulsive and subversive, perfect for fans of Killing Eve and My Sister, the Serial Killer.

‘Deliciously addictive…brilliantly executed’ – iPAPER

‘Addictive… Grace Bernard is one of the most intriguing and bewitching protagonists I’ve read in years’ – EMMA GANNON

Rated 5 stars by COSMOPOLITAN
