A tragic drowning over three decades ago. A body recently found in a Dublin canal. But what connects them? Criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson is about to find out . . .
The Doll’s House is the second book in the series featuring Dr Kate Pearson.

Thirty-five years ago Adrian Hamilton drowned. At the time his death was deemed a tragic accident but the exact circumstances remain a mystery.
His daughter Clodagh now visits a hypnotherapist in an attempt to come to terms with her past, and her father’s death. As disturbing childhood memories are unleashed, memories of another tragedy begin to come to light.
Meanwhile criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson is called to assist in a murder investigation after a body is found in a Dublin canal. And when Kate digs beneath the surface of the killing, she discovers a sinister connection to the Hamilton family.
Time is running out for Clodagh and Kate.
And the killer has already chosen his next victim . . .

Winner of Crime Fiction Book of the Year Award (BGE Irish Book Awards 2013)


BBC Radio Ulster on THE DOLL'S HOUSE
A great read told at breakneck speed, cue sitting on the edge of your seat for 400 pages
Irish Independent on THE DOLL'S HOUSE
A gripping, suspenseful story peopled with well-drawn characters
Niamh O'Connor on THE DOLL'S HOUSE
Chilling, mesmerising. Gets under your skin and stays with you
The Irish Post on THE DOLL'S HOUSE
A real page turner...Phillips' book is laced with tension and gradually builds to a thrilling finale on THE DOLL'S HOUSE
Every bit as good as her debut Red Ribbons, this time with much more of a slant towards a psychological thriller which fans of Sophie Hannah and SJ Watson will devour
Phillips doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of Dublin city...Her characters are well-crafted, the plot interesting and well-executed and, at the risk of sounding cliché, a page turner. It's gritty and it's dark, but at the same time hopeful...A brilliant read. I devoured it
Arlene Hunt on RED RIBBONS
A cracker of a novel, highly recommended, a phenomenal debut
Stafford FM on RED RIBBONS
An absolutely brilliant book...spine-tingling with loads of twists and turns. A debut novel from a great writer who will soon be up there with the likes of Patricia Cornwell
Novelicious on RED RIBBONS
The pace of this book is spot on, revealing information from the killer's past bit by bit to keep the reader turning the pages
Irish Mail on Sunday on RED RIBBONS
Red Ribbons has been getting rave reviews, especially for the insight it offers into the emotions of a mother who has lost her child
Irish Examiner on RED RIBBONS
Dark, spooky but believable
Kingdon Books, Vermont
The pace is tight, the emotions piercing....significant and suspenseful. The clock is ticking, and there's reason to believe that destruction and abuse are multiplying....chilling criminal maneouvres subtly echo the evil that Stuart Neville taps into so readily
Pearson is developing into a strong series heroine, and her role as DI O'Connor's conscience demonstrates the trust and growing affection he has for the still-married shrink. A great blend of psychological suspense and cop drama
