Summary

Something old, something new

Winter brings more than fierce Atlantic storms to the thriving tourist town of Kylebeggan in County Kerry. On a cold January night, a woman is murdered and laid out in her wedding dress on her bed. And then another woman is discovered murdered in her flat, laid out in the same way. Weeks later, taxi driver Ellie Gillespie collects a bride-to-be on her hen night and drops her home. Ellie is horrified when this woman too is later discovered dead in her gown.

Something borrowed

The gardaí, mayor and tourist board are desperate to end the negative publicity of a town that relies on the holiday trade; they cannot afford to have a rumour spread that a serial killer is at large.

Someone...dead

Ellie also has her own suspicions about the killer. She is persuaded to share her thoughts with investigative journalist Cormac Scully; digging into past secrets of the town, can they figure out who it is before the Bride Collector strikes again?

Critic reviews

"Vivid characters, great storytelling and a spine-tingling twist." (Jo Spain)

"Dark, tense and richly atmospheric, the past is never far away in this twisty thriller where nothing is quite as it seems." (Sam Blake)

"MacDonald builds the action to a spectacularly creepy climax, and there is a superbly worked twist to follow that will take your breath away." (Irish Times)

"Creepy, chilling, and a terrific page-turner. Siobhan is right at the top of her game." (Dymphna Nugent)

Ready for the big screen

This homely tale has a gritty underbelly. The characters grow on you and you root for the main character even though you feel somethings off. Would love to have seen this story told from a few perspectives as there is depth here worth exploring ……maybe a sequel will follow?
