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:

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