Faber & Faber 320pp £12.99 order from our bookshop

Whatever You Love centres on the unravelling of Laura, a divorced mother-of-two who finds it increasingly difficult to pick up the threads of her life after her nine-year-old daughter, Betty, is killed in a hit-and-run. As normality returns for those around her, Laura’s pain crystallises into a need for action, revenge and resolution – a desire that will bring her face to face with the immigrant man who killed her child.
