Summary

Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan does not wish to linger on the grisly scene before her eyes. Two mutilated corpses. In a church. In Clontarf. Her profiling background screams one fact: this is just the beginning of a sickening message. 

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old case is playing out on a TV documentary, the convicted professing his innocence and historical police errors being exposed daily in the media. Frankie's superior, commissioner Donna Hegarty, makes no bones about who she expects to clean things up - both in terms of past mishandlings and the present murders. But not everyone working the cases wants the truth to come out. And the corridors of power have their own vested interest. 

Soon Frankie pinpoints just what is making her so nervous: the fact that anyone could be the next victim when justice is the killer.

The Killer In Me is a fast-paced thriller in which lies are safer that the truth, the past is never far from the present, and the ability to kill could well, it seems, live in everyone.

I loved this so much

Loved this book and couldn’t stop listening... I felt I was a part of it all as it was so well written and descriptive but not forced. Readers/listeners aren’t spoon fed or forced into thinking. I was always changing my mind and guessing! I felt like I knew each character and I love Frankie Sheehan. This was so easy to get lost in, the writing is beautiful and natural, the story is brilliant and unpredictable! I loved, loved, LOVED it!!!
