Waterstones Says

The crime novelist’s crime novelist, Helen Fitzgerald has a unique ability to combine gallows humour belly-laughs with searing, white knuckle suspense. Worst Case Scenario’s twisted tale of an acerbic probation officer and a notorious wife-killer is another pitch-perfect thriller packed full of quotable lines and heart-stopping incident.   

Shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020

A deliciously dark, unapologetically funny, and nail-bitingly tense psychological thriller by the international bestselling author of The Cry.

Mary Shields is a moody, acerbic probation offer, dealing with some of Glasgow's worst cases, and her job is on the line. Liam Macdowall was imprisoned for murdering his wife, and he's published a series of letters to the dead woman, in a book that makes him an unlikely hero - and a poster boy for Men's Rights activists.

Liam is released on licence into Mary's care, but things are far from simple. Mary develops a poisonous obsession with Liam and his world, and when her son and Liam's daughter form a relationship, Mary will stop at nothing to impose her own brand of justice ... with devastating consequences.

A heart-pounding, relentless and chilling psychological thriller, rich with deliciously dark and unapologetic humour, Worst Case Scenario is also a perceptive, tragic and hugely relevant book by one of the most exciting names in crime fiction.
