Harry Hartog's review

Wonderfully dark and strange (what's with all the snails...?), 'Death of a Bookseller' will leave you slightly creeped out but also wanting more! We follow Roach, a true-crime obsessed bookseller, as she forms an awkward attachment to fellow bookseller Laura, a true-crime hater, that quickly evolves into obsession. I found both characters to be highly unlikeable which I absolutely loved, and flew through this book in a few days. Highly recommend to people who loved 'Bunny' by Mona Awad! - Sarah, Harry Hartog Marrickville Joyce (fellow HHMM Bookseller): I also loved this one! It resurrected me from a reading slump!

Publisher's description

A BOOKSHOP. A TRUE CRIME CASE. A DEADLY FRIENDSHIP.

THE UNMISSABLE DEBUT THRILLER.

Roach - bookseller, loner and true crime obsessive - is not interested in making friends. She has all the company she needs in her serial killer books, murder podcasts and her pet snail, Bleep.

That is, until Laura joins the bookshop.

Smelling of roses, with her cute literary tote bags and beautiful poetry, she's everyone's new favourite bookseller. But beneath the shiny veneer, Roach senses a darkness within Laura, the same darkness Roach possesses.

As Roach's curiosity blooms into morbid obsession, it becomes clear that she is prepared to infiltrate Laura's life at any cost.
