No one even knew they were together. Now one of them is dead.
56 DAYS AGO
Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin and start dating the same week COVID-19 reaches Irish shores.
35 DAYS AGO
When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests they move in together. Ciara sees a unique opportunity for a relationship to flourish without the scrutiny of family and friends. Oliver sees a chance to hide who—and what—he really is.
Detectives arrive at Oliver’s apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.
Can they determine what really happened, or has lockdown created an opportunity for someone to commit the perfect crime?
Wonderful. Spectacular. I want to convey that I read or listen to a lot of novels in this genre and, for the most part, they are enjoyable to 1° or another but almost always there are sizable holes,if not in the plot then in the characters not behaving in believable or realistic ways. This is a tricky plot that’s well executed and the characters are complex. If I think about books like this once I finish them it’s usually along the lines of “ Now wait a second… if X and Y then why did character A say this or do that?” This time I guess you could say I examined the character’s feelings, morals and ethics compared to what my own might have been in the same circumstances.
