Product description


'This creeping disquieting story, complete with a bitter courtroom drama and strong female protagonist, had me guessing until the rollercoaster end. A thoroughly satisfying addition to the genre' Lesley Thomson, author of The Detective's Daughter.

'Full of unexpected twists and turns that keep you guessing. I couldn't put it down' Jessica Jarlvi, author of When I Wake Up.

'If you loved Apple Tree Yard, you'll love In the Blood. Totally gripping and compelling – Ruth Mancini has not just produced a great whodunit – but has had to find the evidence to prove whodunit. Perfectly crafted' Sarah Flint.

'Beautifully written scenes that really immerse you into the action both in and out of the courtroom. The finale is clever – in fact the whole novel is gorgeously plotted ... An absolute perfect storm for me ... I was riveted' Liz Barnsley, Goodreads Reviewer.

'A cracking story which pulls you in and simply doesn't let you go ... The plotting is superb and I really hope that it won't be long before we hear more from Ms Mancini' The Bookbag.

'Criminal defence lawyer Ruth Mancini has written a chilling study of class, motherhood and power' The Law Society Gazette.

'Chilling and compulsive' Candis.

'A deftly plotted story that is always absorbing' Law Society Gazette.

Book Description



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.

'I tore through it once I'd started. A fantastic thriller that grips you from the first page and doesn't let go until the explosive finish. Brilliant' JENNY BLACKHURST, author of How I Lost You.
