ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Because detective Emilia Hart is a woman, she's been assigned to domestic violence matters not worthy enough of her male colleagues' attention. But when a high profile Sydney barrister who has made his reputation on defending the indefensible is murdered in front of her, she lands a spot on the investigation. While she becomes more aware of his repulsive manners, no suspect is forthcoming. And then another man is killed in the same method, felled by a sniper's bullet. It's just the beginning of a killing spree, one that takes on an even more sinister light when a manifesto is discovered, penned by The Daughters of Eve who are taking revenge on male perpetrators of domestic violence around the country. As panic spreads amongst the populace, Hart partners with a Melbourne detective, and her unique set of experiences come into their own; but the killings also come close to her, when one of her adopted daughters knows the victim. With a flawed but all-too-human protagonist, and a compelling and intriguing plot, this was a book I read in a day - and one that promises the readers will see more of Hart in the future. Lindy

INTRODUCING A THRILLING NEW VOICE IN CRIME FICTION
'Fast paced, gripping and topical, without ever losing its heart, Daughters of Eve will have you questioning notions of justice and retribution, and just how far you would go to protect the ones you love.' - Jacqueline Bublitz, author of Before You Knew My Name

'Highly original...

I was hooked from start to finish.' - Sara Foster, author of The Hush

When a high-profile murder lands literally at her feet, Detective Emilia Hart sees a chance to expand her caseload beyond the endless succession of domestic violence matters she is forced to investigate. But this is no simple investigation.

Another body turns up, then another. Then more - a lot more. All men, all shot, with a similar MO. It's not until a manifesto taking credit for the crimes is published by a group calling themselves Daughters of Eve that Hart confirms a link between the victims: all of them had been perpetrators themselves. All had offended against women or children. Few had been charged with those crimes - and none convicted.

As panic sets in and chaos rules the streets, the police draw ever closer to the Daughters of Eve, but the serial killer continues to elude them. Again, Hart sees something that everyone else has missed. And what that is, she cannot believe.

A stunning debut that will take you to the edge and dare you to look down.

'Strap in for a wild, fast and furious ride. A propulsive, addictive read that tackles big, real issues - add it to your must read pile immediately.' - Sarah Bailey, author of The Housemate

'With twists and turns that will keep you guessing, this is an electrifying, thought-provoking thriller.' - Petronella McGovern, author of Six Minutes

'Explosive and confronting. Nina D. Campbell is a new talent in crime fiction. One to be watched.' - Fleur McDonald, author of Deception Creek

Reviews for Daughters of Eve

'Fast paced, gripping and topical, without ever losing its heart. A contemporary and engaging take on the classic revenge thriller, Daughters of Eve will have you questioning notions of justice and retribution, and just how far you would go to protect the ones you love. I hope there's more to come from Campbell's complex and engaging Detective Emilia Hart.' - Jacqueline Bublitz, author of Before You Knew My Name 'Strap in for a wild, fast and furious ride. Daughters of Eve manages to have it all: romance, a soaring body count and a wonderfully complex main character who you will be rooting for from page one. It's a propulsive, addictive read but it tackles big, real issues - add it to your must read pile immediately.' - Sarah Bailey, author of The Housemate 'This accomplished, intelligent debut brings us Emilia Hart, a gutsy detective determined to find justice for abused girls and women. But as Emilia becomes embroiled in a multiple murder investigation, she starts to question who the victims really are in this case and if justice is ever possible. Dark and compelling, this story races to an explosive climax. I loved the beating heart of this novel - Emilia and her cobbled-together family of lost souls who would do anything for each other. With twists and turns that will keep you guessing, this is an electrifying, thought-provoking thriller.' - Petronella McGovern, author of Six Minutes 'Gripping, gritty and gung-ho...an important new voice in crime fiction.' - Kylie Ladd, author of The Way Back 'Explosive and confronting. Nina D. Campbell is a new talent in crime fiction. One to be watched.' - Fleur McDonald, author of Deception Creek 'Daughters of Eve is a breathless, thoughtful, primal narrative, stylishly and passionately written. But most of all it is story with heart.' - Sulari Gentill, author of Crossing the Lines 'Compelling, taut, and impossible to forget, Daughters of Eve is an important book from formidable new talent Nina D. Campbell. Blending unputdownable suspense with heartbreaking family drama, this book is a must-read.' - Lisa Ireland, author of The Shape of Us 'This is an astonishing debut! Expertly plotted, this is a brave and vulnerable story that will pull you in from the first pages and leave you gasping at the end. Daughters of Eve is written with deep insight and sensitivity into the injustices all too many women face, while highlighting the need for society to take gendered violence and misogyny seriously. Never have I read a story like this one, a crime novel that is so much more. This is a story with a beating heart that reaches through the pages and urges you to look at familiar issues with new eyes. An utterly moving book with characters who will hold on to you long after the last page.' -Tabitha Bird, author of A Lifetime of Impossible Days 'A highly original and thought-provoking procedural thriller. I was hooked from start to finish.' - Sara Foster, author of The Hush
