Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tyley prides herself on writing gritty, fast paced mystery novels without gratuitous sex and violence, and that's exactly what you get in Bitter Nothings. As Dervla starts to investigate she finds clues that the police have overlooked, surreptitiously interviews her family, and even contacts the murdered woman's ex-husband and a whole cast of shady as scandalous characters. It reads like an intriguing puzzle, and is reminiscent of the great crime novels like Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. Just when you think that you have guessed the identity of the killer, Tyley throws in another clue and you have to start all over again."
 
Reviewed by Laura Money, The Australia Times
 
"I absolutely love Vicki Tyley's suspense books, and Bitter Nothings is certainly no exception. Her skill in weaving the various strands of the story together, and in dropping just enough hints and clues to keep you on both the tips of your toes and the edge of your seat, is immense. Each time you think you've got a handle on the plot, it veers off in a new direction and throws you a curve ball. Yet again I did not see the end coming, and her ability to consistently mislead and blindside her readers is remarkable. Her characters are always vivid and realistic and she often sneaks in a bit of humour and a smidgen of romance. Once again, I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending this book."

"Once again, Vicki Tyley had me guessing, right from the start, trying to figure out who dunnit. I've enjoyed reading all her books, paying particular attention to her maturing style. And in the process, I've learned quite a bit about contemporary Australian society." --Book Boogie

From the Author

I often say that all my life experiences are brought to bear in my writing, but it wasn't until I wrote Bitter Nothings that I delved into my own family experiences. And that's probably because enough years have passed that I can now talk openly about it. In Bitter Nothings the protagonist's mother had committed suicide on what would've been her and her estranged husband's thirtieth wedding anniversary. In one of those truth-is-stranger-than-fiction twists, my mother committed suicide on my parents' twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Obviously the details and motives are different and my parents were still married, but the emotion and questions are still the same. The two brothers in Bitter Nothings are loosely modelled on my own two brothers (except my brothers can tolerate each other even less than the brothers in the story). But that's as far as the similarities go to my own situation. Dervla, the sister in the story, is nothing like myself or any of my three sisters.
