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. 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. 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. 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.
Apple Tree Yard meets Silk. Gritty, fast paced, cracking read. Alison is a barrister, neglecting her husband and daughter, always working late and drinking after work. (There's seems to be a big drinking culture in the legal profession). Throw in an extra marital sex and pretty rough to boot with a solicitor. Given her first murder trial, she soon identifies that all is not it seems and there are similarities with her own marriage. Auto erotica, you get that from the prologue but not made clear until the twist at the end. Highly recommended but not if you're easily offended by language and subject matter.
