Poison Heart

Publisher: Quercus

Katy Rivers has never been super-confident but finally, at college, she is beginning to feel comfortable in her own skin: she has good friends and drop-dead gorgeous Merlin seems besotted with her. Then Genevieve arrives on the scene.

Genevieve is enigmatic, cruel, mysterious and captivating and bit by bit she seems to be taking over Katy's life. Struggling to understand why she should be a target for the new girl's malice, Katy begins to explore Genevieve's past which appears to contain not only tragedy but also seemingly inexplicable sinister and disturbing events.

A complex and cleverly plotted unravelling of Genevieve's history finally reveals the key to this insightful and appealing thriller.
