Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Bitter Fruits by Alice Clark-Pitt, read by Kristin Atherton, Rachel Bavidge, Stefan Booth, Roy McMillian and Tania Rodrigues. The murder of a first-year student at Durham University shocks the city. But the very last thing anyone expects is an instant confession...As Detective Inspector Erica Martin investigates Joyce College, a cradle for the country's future elite, she finds a close-knit community of secrets, jealousy and obsession. The picture of the victim, Emily Brabents, that begins to emerge is that of a girl wanted by everyone, but not truly known by anyone. Anyone, that is, except Daniel Shepherd. Her fellow student, ever-faithful friend and the only one who cares. The only one who would do anything for her...
