Summary

Perfect for fans of Tana French, Jane Casey and Gillian Flynn. 

Too soon to see. 

Polished. Professional. Perfect. Dead. Respected scientist Dr Eleanor Costello is found hanged in her immaculate home: the scene the very picture of a suicide. 

Too late to hide. 

DCS Frankie Sheehan is handed the case and almost immediately spots foul play. Sheehan, a trained profiler, is seeking a murderer with a talent for death. 

Too close to breathe. 

As Frankie strives to paint a picture of the killer and their victim, she starts to sense they are part of a larger, darker canvas, on which the lines between the two blur. 

Olivia Kiernan's debut is a bold, brilliant thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.

Fresh 'irish' read

Intriguing and engaging - kept me curious to the end. Authentic to 2018 Duublin.
