Dead Jealous

Publisher: Orchard Books

Review

When Poppy Sinclair finds the body of a young woman washed up on the shore of a lake, she is convinced it is a case of murder rather than the tragic accident or suicide which is the theory favoured by police.

As Poppy struggles with memories of her own near-death experience and the pain of seeing the boy she loves with another girl, she finds it difficult to draw clear lines between reality and imagination -  especially as people and things are not always what they seem. Yet despite the risks, she is determined to prove that someone close by is a murderer...

This is an engaging, complex and  thoughtful thriller, featuring a plot thick with lies, secrets, deceit and jealousy.
