Synopsis

The intoxicating book club pick that everyone is talking about this summer.


'Barkworth is excruciatingly good... An impressive first book' OBSERVER 


'Painfully real, and so beautifully written I wanted to stay within its pages forever' CLARE MACKINTOSH


'Stylish and sensual' KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE


This summer burns with secrets...


It is too hot to sleep. To work. To be questioned time and again by the police.


At the beginning of a stifling, sultry summer, everything shifts irrevocably when Lily doesn't come home one afternoon.


Rachel is Lily's teacher. Her daughter Mia is Lily's best friend. The girls are fifteen - almost women, still children.


As Rachel becomes increasingly fixated on Lily's absence, she finds herself breaking fragile trusts and confronting impossible choices she never thought she'd face.


It wasn't supposed to happen like this.


Intoxicating and compulsive, Heatstroke is a darkly gripping, thought-provoking novel of crossed boundaries, power and betrayal, that plays with expectations at every turn.


FOR FANS OF ZOE HELLER, EMMA CLINE, EXPECTATION AND MY DARK VANESSA.
