Book Synopsis:

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.

My Review:

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.

About The Author:


Anita Waller was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in 1946. She married Dave in 1967 and they have three adult children.
She began writing when she was around 8 years of age, writing ‘compositions’ at junior school that became books with chapters. She wrote several novels in the romance genre and then realised she wanted to add murders to the romances, so she morphed into a psychological thriller author. Beautiful was her first completed novel in this genre.
The manuscript was submitted to Bloodhound Books who, within three days of reading it, offered her a contract. 31 August 2015 it was released as an ebook, to be followed a couple of days later by the paperback version.
Following the outstanding success of Beautiful, she began a sequel on 27 December 2015, finishing it on 19 March 2016. The new novel, Angel, was launched on 7 May 2016.
Her third novel, 34 Days, followed Angel and was launched on 3 October 2016 to outstanding success; at its highest level, it was #26 in Amazon charts. It is selling equally as well in the US and Australia and has sold over 15,000 copies in the first eight weeks following publication.
She then took time out to temporarily change genre; Winterscroft, a supernatural novel, was launched on 7 February 2017. While she was writing Winterscroft it became clear that fans of 34 Days wanted a sequel, and on 10 August 2017, Strategy was launched.
She is now working on her sixth novel, A Legal Issue, once again set in Sheffield, and once again a psychological thriller.
In addition to writing, she also teaches patchwork and quilting – a little reference to this is likely to surface in every book!
She is a lifelong Sheffield Wednesday supporter with blue blood in her veins! More than a little reference to this is likely to surface – see 34 Days!Her genre is murder – necessary murder.
