Bitter Fruits by Alice Clark-Platts is a page-turning murder mystery set in the UK. When a first-year student at Durham University is found dead in the weir, a police investigation ensues, which exposes secrets, jealousy, and obsession within the close-knit community. This plot-driven story will rouse your suspicions, force you to second-guess the characters, and inspire you to solve the crime.
Alice, the author, is a friend of mine, and I had the privilege of reading Bitter Fruits in draft form when Alice was still editing her manuscript. It was so engaging that I had to buy a copy as soon as it was published. If you like drama, intrigue, and twists, I suggest you do the same.
