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.

What Reviewers Are Saying
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 *
