What if a death sentence meant you could get away with murder?
Claudia and Heather have been friends and neighbours for many years and both women decide it is the right time for them to leave their husbands. Together they get a flat but their peace is short-lived when Claudia is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Being a good friend, Heather takes on caring for Claudia but a lethal meeting with James, Claudia’s ex-husband, results in someone dying.
As life for Claudia and Heather begins to unravel, the answer to their problems becomes clear… it’s murder.
Malignant is available in paperback and ebook now. The ebook is currently only 99p. You can purchase your copy of both here.
I’m a huge fan of Anita Waller and I couldn’t wait to read her latest book Malignant. I was not disappointed as Malignant is a fantastic book that manages to combine a crime story with a heartbreaking one amazingly well.
I absolutely loved the two main female characters Heather and Claudia. They are such wonderful strong individuals that show a lot of strength and courage to do what they do and start again. I warmed to them straight away and wanted things to go right for them, getting overly cross when they started to go wrong. I wanted to keep reading to see if they’d get the happy ending I felt they deserved.
This is described as a psychological thriller and that side of the book is done extremely well too. There are lots of twists and turns as well as moments that made me gasp out loud which did help make the book hard to put down. However, in my opinion, this is eclipsed by the human aspect of the story and the heart breaking things that the characters face.
I’ve read most of Anita’s books but I think this one is my favourite so far as I felt so engaged with the characters. I think it’s definitely a story that I’ll remember for a while. If you like emotional psychological thrillers with some fabulous character yoully love this book.
Huge thanks to Sarah and Emma from Bloodhound books for inviting me onto the blog tour and sending me a copy of this book.
