What if a death sentence meant you could get away with murder?
Claudia and Heather have been friends and neighbours for many years and both women decide it is the right time for them to leave their husbands. Together they get a flat but their peace is short-lived when Claudia is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Being a good friend, Heather takes on caring for Claudia but a lethal meeting with James, Claudia’s ex-husband, results in someone dying.
As life for Claudia and Heather begins to unravel, the answer to their problems becomes clear… it’s murder.
I know as soon as I pick one of this authors books up I won’t be going anywhere soon. They are such addictive reads and Malignant was yet another one.
Claudia and Heather’s friendship is one that I think many of us would envy. To be neighbours as well as good friends was so lovely to see. What wasn’t though is the issues that both women are experiencing due to their other halves. The story actually deals with quite a few tough subjects, which could make uncomfortable reading for some readers, but as always, the author handles it really well.
There are lots of twists and turns throughout the story so it’s best that I don’t delve to much into the actual story line itself. I think what the main winning ingredient in this novel though is, is the two women’s friendship. It really stands out and makes for some compelling reading.
Malignant is a captivating and at times emotional read that will have you well and truly hooked. The authors writing feels so effortless and flows exceptionally well. It’s the one thing that I have come to expect and love about her books. If you want a book that will draw you in right from the first page and not let you go until the very last, then you need to check out Anita Waller’s books right now!
