Dear Elizabeth, I've been watching you. I hope to see you...soon.
Liz Cafferky is on the up. Rescued from her dark past by the owner of a drop-in centre for older men, Liz soon finds herself as the charity's face - and the unwilling darling of the Dublin media. Amidst her claustrophobic fame, Liz barely notices a letter from a new fan.
But then one of the centre's clients is brutally murdered, and Elizabeth receives another, more sinister note. Running from her own ghosts, Liz is too scared to go to the police. And with no leads, there is little Sergeant Claire Boyle can do to protect her.

"Brilliantly original and genuinely scary." (Sunday Mirror on Can Anybody Help Me?)
"Chilling, riveting and briliantly written, you'll be up reading this way into the night." (Closer on Can Anybody Help Me?)
"A gripping, fast-paced tale." (Irish Times on Can Anybody Help Me?)
I love history, crime and thrillers, biographies and almost anything by the BBC.
I enjoyed this well narrated thriller not least because I know Dublin City very well so I could follow the action in my mind's eye. The two main characters leading the investigation are well-rounded and convincing as well as being complimentary in mind set and approach. There is a home in Dublin which has been set up to welcome men in difficulty especially older men whether they be homeless or not. When one of the regulars is found brutally murdered in his home this sets off a chain of events which will uncover base greed and corruption of various noteworthies. Meanwhile the young woman who is employed at the home herself an ex drug addict, appears on television to further the cause but unknowingly she will gain an admirer who has unfortunate connections.
Enjoyable read and I would read another by this author to see how the writing progresses.
Highly recommended. Atmospheric, compelling and beautifully observed, Sinead Crowley proves her first book wasn't a one off wonder. Let's hope there's more!
Retired Psychologist Love reading/audiobooks, travelling, animals Favourite saying The fact that you believe something does not make it true
This is a gripping tale that maintains a sense of menace throughout. It's well written, the characters have depth and it's easy to identify with many of them. Excellent narration. Recommend.
