Publisher Review

'Just finished Will Dean's Bad Apples. A delicious return to Tuva.' -- Ann Cleeves 'Fiendish, funny, scary as hell. Bad Apples is the stand out in a truly outstanding series.' -- Chris Whitaker, author of We Begin at the End 'Bad Apples is a chilling outing for Tuva Moodyson - unsettling from beginning to the very end, but leavened with dark humour. A compelling thriller that devoted fans and new readers will adore.' -- Jane Casey, author of the Maeve Kerrigan series 'Finished Bad Apples by Will Dean and all I can say is...there aren't words. Talk about DARK.' -- Blue Book Balloon blog 'Swedish reporter Tuva Moodyson, who wears hearing aids, takes to the hills where the isolated and inbred town of Visberg can be found at the end of a long and winding road.' -- The Times 'Bad Apples is noir at its very best... If you like "heart in your mouth" reads that will keep you up all night with all the lights on, then this is for you.' * Guernsey Press and Star * '[Tuva] is admirably resilient, full of warmth and humour... Her travails may well give sensitive readers nightmares, but that's a small price to pay for spending time in her exhilarating company.' -- Literary Review 'The fourth in the excellent series of Tuva Moodyson thrillers' -- Choice 'A brilliant read.' -- Bella 'Chilling.' -- Crime Monthly magazine 'That ending! I highly recommend if you need something to get your teeth into.' -- Lancashire Post 'For those who want their crime fiction to be at its darkest... If you enjoyed Midsommar, Bad Apples is a tale you'll be intrigued by.' -- Buzz magazine 'There's always been something dark about the Tuva Moodyson thrillers, but this one really howls at the moon... You might now find yourself screaming out loud, so best beware reading in public places! The last page left me in shock.' -- Peterborough Telegraph
