Half her family have been murdered in their beds. Her father is the prime suspect. And things are about to get a whole lot worse…

Graphic designer Dervla Johns wakes one morning to the news that her father, Warren, is missing and her stepmother and step-siblings were found dead in their beds. While the police hunt for Warren, Dervla searches for answers. Could her father really be a killer? Refusing to be warned off by police threats, or intimidated by the reporter who appears to be following her, she delves into her family’s past.

But as she uncovers one shocking secret after another, Dervla’s world is rocked further by another murder – and she finds herself desperately trying to untangle a web of illicit love and betrayal. Soon, Dervla must face her greatest fear… or suffer the same deadly fate as her stepmother.

BITTER NOTHINGS is a thrilling page-turner that fans of Erica Spindler and Karin Slaughter will love.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

It is my first book from this author but be rest assured it is not my last! The characters are believable, you get to know them and feel what they feel. You think with them, but you also try to get them to continue their thoughts! You just want to jump in and say something because you get brought into the story.


With a good mix of characters and a surprise ending, it was a good and easy read. I enjoyed this book and will read more by this author.


Bitter Nothings is an edgy psychological whodunnit, centered on a dysfunctional extended Australian family. Vicki Tyley has mastered the knack of misdirecting the reader, so the denouement always comes as a complete surprise – even if you know her style, and try to double-guess. This is what makes her so readable.


I am reading her books faster than she can write them! With each chapter of every book she leaves you craving even more!


Vicki Tyley’s books are always good value and Bitter Nothings is no exception. The characters are well presented and the plot well crafted. I usually identify the murderer, but I have to say that this time I didn’t twig it.
