Cover Reveal: All the Blood We Share

I am so proud to share the stunning cover of my next historical murder book, ALL THE BLOOD WE SHARE!

The novel is about Kate Bender, who ran a deadly inn on the Kansas prairie together with her family.

I have rarely come across a historical character with more strange rumors attached to her name, and can’t wait for readers to meet my version of her.

Out November 22 from Berkley.

Triflers Need Not Apply is out today!

Hooray! My murder book is out in the UK today, and I’m so very, very thrilled about the reception.

Here’s a couple of lovely quotes:

Based on a true story, with dark humour throughout, you will be hooked


Extraordinary. Bruce does a marvellous job of reimagining this real-life murderer, without excusing her crimes

The Times

Interview with IndyStar

A little while back, I did an interview with the Indianapolis Star about
IN THE GARDEN OF SPITE, and they turned it into a glorious article about Belle and the book.

Since the real Belle Gunness lived — and murdered — in Indiana, it definitely felt like closing a circle.

Here is a quote:

Bruce’s novel does much more than merely set what’s already known about Gunness’ atrocities to a fictional tune. Instead, she imagines how Gunness — a rare female serial killer — might have justified her endeavor. The character is a potent combination of cold sociopath, unfailing pragmatist and unhealed victim.
