"Tyley is a master at weaving a complex, multilayered plot." –BigAl's Books and Pals

When soon-to-be-wed Tanya Clark is confronted with her fiancé's naked corpse hanging from a wardrobe rail in the upmarket Melbourne apartment they share, her life is torn apart. Two months later, distraught and unable to cope, she drowns her sorrows in a lethal cocktail of alcohol and prescription drugs.

On the other side of Australia, a grieving Jemma Dalton struggles to come to terms with the suicide of her only sibling. Despite there being no evidence to the contrary, Jemma refuses to accept Tanya had intended to kill herself. Not her sister. Then the coroner's report reveals that at the time of her death she had been six weeks pregnant. The will, too, raises more questions than it answers. How did a young woman on a personal assistant's wage amass shares worth in excess of $1,000,000?

In a desperate bid to uncover the truth, Jemma puts her own life at risk and starts to probe the shadows of her sister's life. But shadows, like bones, grow brittle with age. The consequences can be deadly.

"If you like mystery fiction with a psychological flair, Vicki Tyley will deliver. She understands that fiction is about real people, and that real people have their dangerous flaws." –Scott Nicholson, THE SKULL RING

Editorial Reviews

Suspense Magazine - Amanda Goossen
Page after page of twists make this novel a smashing success. The characters are multi-faceted and complex and the reader never knows whom to trust. It wasn't until I read the very last page of "Thin Blood" that I exhaled. I was stunned and you will be too.
Ebook Alchemy - Archelle Baker
It's written in a style that makes you forget you're reading at all. The story flows so easily that before you know what's happened, fifty pages are gone. It practically reads itself.

The author is brilliant at giving exactly enough detail...

The Big Picture: This comes highly recommended from me. If you like murder mysteries, female sleuths, or both, this is a must-read. I thought I had the mystery solved until the very end, but I was wrong.
Readers' Favorite - Julia Hopkinson
I really enjoyed reading Thin Blood; it strikes an original note in the whodunit genre and has a compelling and well-plotted story. It drew me in straight away with a stunning prologue and kept ratcheting up the tension in every chapter. There is the main, over-arching plot and an equally diverting sub-plot relating to Jacinta's past. The chapters themselves are short, and jump between multiple character points of view so the twin tales evolve quickly. The story twists and turns...
