Rosa is an interesting and sometimes very flawed character with a great heart. Now if she can only get it together to realize her two teenagers cannot be allowed to make her decisions. There are parts of her life as an adult that are simply none of t...
turned a corner.But this faint glimmer of hope is quickly extinguished.Dead, mutilated animals start appearing on the Thorn doorstep.And a sinister man is stalking her daughter, Anna.Just as Rosa begins to comprehend the true, sinister nature of her London surroundings, the body of a young girl is found in the neighbourhood park.With a potential murder case to solve, suddenly everybody becomes a suspect…Nobody is above suspicion and the more Rosa encounters the friendly façade of urban living, the more she is convinced that there is a terrifying world lurking just under the surface.If Rosa can establish who is causing the trouble, then there may be a chance for the Thorns to get their lives back on track.But the threat of malice is never far behind…Thorn is a gripping blend of family drama and grizzly mystery, dragging the reader into the complexities of love and loss, and deeper into the depravity of the human mind.Praise for Vena Cork‘An outstanding debut.’ – Time Out‘One of those rare and energetic books you can’t put down yet don’t want to end.’ - The Times‘A compelling, dark-hued psychological thriller that eerily captures some of London’s more sinister undercurrents and sense of menace.’ - Guardian‘In her atmospheric novel Thorn, Vena Cork skilfully builds a sinister feeling of menace surrounding her attractive heroine.’ - Sunday Telegraph‘There’s more to this psychological thriller than meets the eye. Look no further for a real sense of menace.’ - Daily Mirror‘You’ll be gripped as this persuasive thriller races to its grisly conclusion.’ - Marie Claire‘Vena Cork’s perceptions of human nature are spot-on and the suspense is tangible when the small malevolent acts turn into something much more evil and sinister. This is a great start to what is sure to be a string of successful books.’ - Aberdeen Press & Journal‘This gripping, edgy novel is good, believe me. For a first novel, it is better than good. The portrayal of life is awfully well handled and shrewdly characterised…she hooks her reader from the start. Well done, Vena!’ - Colin DexterVena Cork is from Lancashire, but has lived in London all her adult life. She attended Homerton College, Cambridge, where she was a member of Cambridge Footlights. She is married to the art critic Richard Cork and lives in North West London.
