Overview
-

Before settling down to a new life in Italy with her fiancé, Catriona decides to lay her past to rest by meeting up with her previous partners.

But on the morning of her wedding, Cat is arrested for murder. Not just one murder, but three. All of the victims were her ex-boyfriends, and all of them were viciously mutilated.

So now she’s in jail, and the woman who is writing her biography has interviewed many people in Cat’s life. But no one is telling the truth. This is an ingenious and compelling page-turner, full of twists and dark humour from an intriguing and stylish writer with a growing fanbase.

REVIEWS
-

A delight to find something new ... funny, moving, horrifying and compelling

- Times Literary Supplement

Bloody Women is delicious, ingenious, inventive and mordantly funny. Helen FitzGerald has a real skill for making the totally absurd and goofy, thoroughly logical and reasonable.

- Big Beat from Badsville

FitzGerald ... is adept at arresting openings, tense cliffhangers and tumultuous climaxes

- The Herald
