It is the sweltering summer of 1997, and Karen is a strait-laced, straight-A university student. When she meets the impossibly glamorous Biba, a bohemian orphan who lives in a crumbling old mansion in Highgate with her enigmatic brother Rex, she is soon drawn into their world - but something terrible is about to happen, and someone's going to end up dead..

Already drawing comparisons to Barbara Vine, Tana French and Sophie Hannah, Erin Kelly is an extraordinarily talented new author.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A beautifully crafted, evocative psychological thriller . . . dark, poetic, gripping, totally brilliant. * The Times *
A terrific suspense debut, reminiscent of another British woman's auspicious bow: Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca . . . This one gets the writer's ultimate bit of praise: I wish I had written it. * Stephen King *
Unusually good . . . an author who instinctively knows how to tell a suspense story (think early Barbara Vine) * Daily Mail *
A brilliant new voice in crime fiction . . . Kelly creates an atmosphere as claustrophobic as a summer commute, which permeates the narrative and keeps the reader hooked. * Stylist *
A tense, twisting thriller . . . Atmospheric and gripping, it will keep you guessing to the end. * Cosmopolitan *
The dark world of psychological thrillers has a bright new voice . . . [a] twisted, brooding, creepy debut. * Daily Mirror *

“Well plotted story”

Erin Kelly's debut novel is superbly plotted - with just enough information being dripped to the reader to keep your interest and to carry the story along. Perhaps the characterisation is less well developed, but... More

“Amazing first book”

Not quite sure about The poison Tree when I first got it. The cover is a little dark and sinister. I half imagined a thriller/horror novel lay within. Boy, was I wrong. Thriller yes but horror not at all. More of... More
