Some women just can't take a joke.
At least, that's what locals tell the police when a man is found gruesomely murdered at the pub in a tiny outback town. All fingers point to the backpackers working behind the bar that night - sorority sisters Beth and Lauren, who skipped town before the body was discovered.
Despite all the evidence against them, rookie cop Tara Harrison knows there must be more to this case. But even as she tries to prove their innocence, Tara discovers that Beth and Lauren have dark secrets of their own - secrets they've sworn to take to the grave...
Sun-drenched, suspenseful and addictive, with a cast of fierce, unforgettable women, Blood Sisters is the irresistible must-read of Summer 2022. Perfect for fans of Jane Harper, Liane Moriarty and Taylor Jenkins-Reid.
