Bad Seed

Jessica Eames

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Thriller / suspense

Inspired by the news that more people are taking home DNA tests, BAD SEED is a domestic thriller with a difference which explores the closest relationship of all: that between parent and child. For fans of Clare Mackintosh's I LET YOU GO, THE MOTHER IN LAW and Adele Parks.

'Deceptively clever... Bad Seed is a chilling portrayal of how family can go terribly wrong.' - Shari Lapena

A story about family, obsession, revenge and identity, from a blazing new talent.

Family is more than blood. More than DNA. You can choose your family.
But what if you choose wrong?

Nicola thought she'd gotten away with it.

Since her husband died, life has been getting back on track. She has a new boyfriend, Phil. A new home, living next door to her brother-in-law, his wife and their children. She is closer than ever with her daughter, Sarah. She even likes her job at the local shop, though she's had some time off recently with illness. The doctor says it's the menopause, that it's nothing to worry about.

Nicola is finally moving on with her life.

But then she receives the note. Someone knows what she did. They know the secret she doesn't even think about when she is alone.

Nicola is going to die. Just like her husband did.

A gripping domestic thriller told from the points of view of three women from the same family, each with their own heart-wrenching revelation.
