'If you loved Apple Tree Yard, you'll love In the Blood.
Totally gripping and compelling - perfectly crafted' Sarah Flint, author of Mummy's Favourite.
In southeast London, a young mother has been accused of an unthinkable crime: poisoning her own child - and then leaving him to die.
The mother, Ellie, is secretive and challenging - she's had a troubled upbringing - but does that mean she's capable of murder?
Balancing the case with raising her disabled five-year-old son, criminal defence lawyer Sarah Kellerman sets out in desperate pursuit of the truth.
But when her own child becomes unwell, Sarah realises she's been drawn into a dangerous game.
Unsettling and compulsive, In the Blood is a chilling study of class, motherhood and power from a new star in crime fiction.
