Publisher Description

'Truly first class. Just knock-out' C. J Tudor, author of The Chalk Man

Polished. Professional. Perfect. Dead.

When Dr Eleanor Costello is found hanging in her immaculate home, something about the scene doesn't add up.

DCS Frankie Sheehan, a trained profiler, is handed the case and immediately spots foul play. What at first looks like an open and shut case of suicide quickly starts to fall apart.

Then Amy Keegan, a young woman from Frankie's home town, is found dead. As details of her personal life emerge, a sinister link to Eleanor is uncovered. Who were these two women behind their ordinary exteriors? Where is Eleanor's husband, missing these last three weeks? And why can't Frankie shake the feeling that these murders are connected to a previous case?

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

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

Loved that the story was told by the heroine. A real page turner full of surprises and twists telling the story of a female detective who is haunted by her recent shave with death while pursuing a horrific serial killer on the loose in Ireland. Anybody who likes a good crime thriller will find this a great read.
