The Poison Garden

Alex Marwood is a formidable force in the world of psychological thrillers and The Poison Garden is her breathtaking latest tale. I usually don’t like to go too far into the darkness in my crime reading but I can never resist with Marwood’s books; the writing is so brilliant and the twists and turns along the way are so compelling. This is the story of Romy, who has survived the mass suicide of the cult her mother brought her into, along with her siblings who were born within the confines of the cult’s hidden domicile. Romy is a brilliant creation and we are behind the eyes of her aunt, who takes her in and wonders what she’s got herself into. You need to read it immediately!
