“If people think I’m bad, then I’ll be good at that!”

Macy Lord is living her worst life: victimised at home, vilified at school.

When novice Religious Studies teacher Mr Fairclough asks his class to re-interpret The Ten Commandments, Macy resolves, for the sake of authenticity, to break them. Blaming, blaspheming, coveting, dishonouring, lying, stealing, and worshipping shiny stuff all come easy, but then she kills – and kills again.


Traumatised by her potential parricide, Macy goes on the run: faking adulthood in London, blurring art and death in Paris, escaping undercover in Arabia, raising the bar in Brooklyn.  

Pursued by a coterie of vengeful cast-offs, Macy craves her calm, cool Mr Fairclough, but having lost his star pupil, he too has eschewed education for misadventures of his own.

If nurture is absent, will nature take its course? Can Macy find redemption in the chaos of her life? And how will she ‘complete the set’ with The Seventh Commandment still unbroken?

Wendy Salisbury is an author, broadcaster, linguist, social commentator, and antique dealer. Her monthly magazine columns led her to write a lifestyle guide: Move Over, Mrs Robinson, and when the chapter on older women/ younger men provoked mass media interest, she responded with two volumes of dating memoirs: The Toyboy Diaries and The Daily Male, now adapted as a stage musical. Wendy’s tempestuous travels through Spain in the 1960s researching the biography of iconic matador, El Cordobés, inspired her roman à clef Blood on the Sand, the true story behind the gore and the glamour. Wendy divides her time between London and Marbella and embraces the gift of five grandchildren and two granddogs.
