‘Page-turning grit lit – compelling characters that blaze a trail through a riveting plot’ LIZ NUGENT

‘Brilliant … I was riveted from first page to last’ ADRIAN MCKINTY

‘Among the cleverest, most accomplished and compassionate of Irish crime writers’ JOHN CONNOLLY

When Jody Kavanagh is discovered close to death in her home, it’s hard to believe someone wanted to hurt her. Young, talented, loved – she appears to have it all.

As she lies in a coma, Detective Inspector Elliot Ryan and Sergeant Nola Kane begin to piece together a picture of her life – but the image revealed is far from perfect. Is her ex-husband really who he seems to be? Why are her mother and sister estranged? Why is her house full of cameras? Who was Jody afraid of?

Haunted by guilt and in chronic pain, DI Ryan has his own demons. And Kane, who is recovering from an incident where the professional and personal overlapped, needs to prove herself.

From the shaky glamour of Irish high society to the cold heart of two broken families, Ryan and Kane must work against hidden forces to restore their reputations and find who wanted to kill Jody – and why.
