'A wonderful, witty, colourful, debut ‘Whodunnit’, with a gripping modern twist set in the dark shadows of a Suffolk town.' EMMA FREUD
Blood Notes is a brilliant and powerful contemporary whodunnit by debut novelist Lin La Versha, dealing with themes of teenage desire, jealousy and betrayal.
Edmund Fitzgerald is different.
Sheltered by an over-protective mother, he’s a musical prodigy.
Now, against his mother’s wishes, he’s about to enter formal education for the first time aged sixteen.
Everything is alien to Edmund: teenage style, language and relationships are impossible to understand.
Then there’s the searing jealousy his talent inspires, especially when the sixth form college’s Head of Music, turns her back on her other students and begins to teach Edmund exclusively.
Observing events is Steph, a former police detective who is rebuilding her life following a bereavement as the college’s receptionist. When a student is found dead in the music block, Steph’s sleuthing skills help to unravel the dark events engulfing the college community.
