A dazzling debut novel of a dark love affair, set to ignite debate in summer 2020.

FOR FANS OF ZOE HELLER, EMMA CLINE, EXPECTATION AND MY DARK VANESSA.

---

The summer burns with secrets...

It is too hot to sleep. To work. To be questioned time and again by the police.

At the beginning of a stifling, sultry summer, everything shifts irrevocably when Lily doesn't come home one afternoon.

Rachel is Lily's teacher. Her daughter Mia is Lily's best friend. The girls are fifteen - almost women, still children.

As Rachel becomes increasingly fixated on Lily's absence, she finds herself breaking fragile trusts and confronting impossible choices she never thought she'd face.

It wasn't supposed to happen like this.

Intoxicating and compulsive, Heatstroke is a darkly gripping, thought-provoking novel of crossed boundaries, power and betrayal, that plays with expectations at every turn.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Stylish and sensual -- Kiran Millwood Hargrave
Pulls you into its sweaty interior and keeps you gripped to the end. Darkly atmospheric and so well written -- Renee Knight
Raw, unsparing and almost unbearably tender. Perfect sentences swim gracefully across every page, overlaying a narrative that delights in wrong-footing the readers' assumptions. I couldn't tear myself away -- Erin Kelly
A scorching tale of obsession, betrayal and the wounds that mothers and daughters inflict on each other in the name of love -- Tammy Cohen
