    The jaw-dropping new thriller from Sunday Times bestseller Harriet Tyce

    They say you can’t always get what you want. But you can take it. Anna wants a fresh start. She doesn’t believe she deserves it, but after three years behind bars she has finally paid her dues. Most of them, anyway. Lucy craves the attention of the only man she can’t have, her alluring Oxford professor. He’s married – not for the first time. Maybe she should be next in line?

    Marie the recluse has been locked up for too long. She’s not ready to be free, but some rules are meant to be broken. Everyone wants a perfect life. But not everyone is prepared to take it. Unless someone decides to teach them a lesson.

    ‘Utterly compelling, A Lesson in Cruelty is in the very top tier of psychological thrillers and further cements Harriet Tyce’s place amongst the great British crime writers.’  M.W. Craven

    ‘Perfect plotting, utterly brilliant.’ B.A. Paris
