Synopsis
* SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB STAR PICK * 'Fabulous Dublin-based crime' Jo Spain, bestselling author of The Confession 'Intriguing, compelling and highly entertaining... formidably impressive' Liz Nugent, award-winning author of Unravelling Oliver 'A fabulous closed-room mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end' Denise Mina, acclaimed author of Conviction THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES BUT SOMEONE WAS WATCHING The Macnamara sisters hadn't been seen for months before anyone noticed. It was Father Timoney who finally broke down the door, who saw what had become of them. Berenice was sitting in her armchair, surrounded by religious tracts. Rosaleen had crawled under her own bed, her face frozen in terror. Both had starved themselves to death. Francesca Macnamara returns to Dublin after decades in the US, to find her family in ruins. Meanwhile, Detectives Vincent Swan and Gina Considine are convinced that there is more to the deaths than suicide. Because what little evidence there is, shows that someone was watching the sisters die... 'A terrific new gem of Irish noir' Sunday Times 'Psychological nuanced and compassionate... gripping' Irish Times 'Thrilling... will keep you guessing until the very end' My Weekly 'This creeps up on you until you're hooked' Heat 'Infused with depth, darkness and acute psychological drama' Herald

Fabulous Dublin-based crime. Dark, atmospheric, well-written. Very much in the vein of Tana French. -- Jo Spain, bestselling author of The Confession An intriguing, compelling and highly entertaining story. Formidably impressive writing! -- Liz Nugent, award-winning author of Unravelling Oliver A fabulous closed room mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. This is a gorgeously poetic deep-dive into the pieties and myth-making of Dublin in the early eighties. -- Denise Mina, acclaimed author of Conviction A terrific new gem of Irish noir, written with a light touch but a firm command of character, mannerisms and speech * Sunday Times * Sombre, psychologically nuanced and compassionate... as gripping as it is disturbing * Irish Times * Thrilling... will keep you guessing until the very end * My Weekly * This creeps up on you until you're hooked * Heat * An intriguing and haunting story that will appeal to lovers of the Irish police procedural * NB Magazine * Infused with depth, darkness and acute psychological drama. Her polished prose comes studded with original imagery and her dialogue crackles. We are propelled towards an explosive denouement which, artfully, doubles as a kind of moral reckoning * Herald *
