This is one you won't want to miss."

"One of the best thrillers of the summer and one of the best books of the year. Beautifully written and cleverly plotted with memorable, deftly drawn character, The Weight of Blood is an unmissable debut."
Sunday Express

"I was bewitched by the enchanting Ozark landscape and the haunting murder mystery at the heart of McHugh's masterful debut. The Weight of Blood is the kind of novel that leaves the reader wanting more. I can't wait to read what's next from this gifted new writer."
Amy Greene, author of Bloodroot

"An elegant time-bomb of a novel, a coming-of-age story that holds you captive from the first sentence as McHugh skillfully tips the scales back and forth in this mesmeric mystery where two generations of women struggle to find a balance between loyalty to family and self preservation, with dire consequences. A thrilling debut!"
