Product description


Compulsive reading from page one to the shattering conclusion...Manda Scott's writing is simply beautiful - Denise Mina

Scott's cinematic style has both sweep and depth...Besides exposing the gristle and bone of human violence, Scott astutely probes the aftermath of crime - the loss of moral certitude that truly shatters the soul. - Marilyn Stasio

Gritty, literate, and engaging, NO GOOD DEED is an exceptional achievement. Manda Scott is a fine writer, with a great future - Julia Wallis Martin

'Uncompromising...brilliantly depicted' Gemma O'Connor

'one of the most remarkable thrillers of the year'. Amazon

Dark, taut and edgy, Manda Scott's debut thriller exerts an emotional grip that tightens to a twisting stranglehold. There's not a word wasted in this unflinching novel, which still manages to demonstrate the profound power of love. It's a joy to read something so intelligent, so direct and so beautifully crafted - Val McDermid

'Manda Scott has bypassed all expectations by producing a dark and visceral thriller that's awesomely powerful and a work that should project her to the vanguard of contemporary crime writing...Good as they are (previous novels), these books are light years away from the scorching impact of No Good Deed...This is the best crime novel of the year so far.' W Magazine

Manda Scott picks us up by the scruff of the neck, drags us kickin
