‘Gripping . . . I simply couldn’t put it down’ Edel Coffey, author of Breaking Point

‘Kept me guessing with each page I turned’ Patricia Gibney, author of The Missing Ones

From the Top Ten Irish Times bestselling author comes a gripping, emotional thriller that explores the darkest corners of family and the secrets we hide behind closed doors.

Amy jumps at the opportunity when she’s offered a nannying job in picturesque West Cork. The assignment is for the Carroll family, whose stunning house is situated on a stretch of remote coastline. It’s the perfect chance for Amy to start over – far away from her life in Dublin she is trying to escape.

With two adorable children to oversee, a pair of generous employers and a lavish new home, everything seems wonderful. So why can’t Amy shake a creeping sense of unease? Perhaps it’s the husband’s erratic behaviour. Or the strange messages that somebody has been painting around the local village.

Quickly, it becomes clear that all is not well in the Carroll marriage, nor in their idyllic rural community. Whispered secrets and strange occurrences fill the breath-taking scenery with menace and, as the days pass, Amy realises that the refuge she has sought just might be the most dangerous place of all . . .

‘Utterly chilling, with a real sting in the tail’ Sam Blake, author of Remember My Name

‘An emotional rollercoaster’ Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here


Irish Examiner
Twists and turns in a satisfyingly unpredictable manner . . . A blockbuster thriller
Martina Murphy, author of THE NIGHT CALLER
It's rare a thriller has such an emotional core but this one does. Fabulous
Edel Coffey, author of BREAKING POINT
A gripping, contemporary gothic thriller. I tore through it. I simply couldn't put it down.
Patricia Gibney, author of THREE WIDOWS
Claustrophobic . . . No one is who they seem to be, which kept me guessing with each page I turned. I've no hesitation in recommending Someone You Trust as it is a great read
Brena Brown, Irish Independent
A chilling exploration of what really goes on behind closed doors of a family home. Someone You Trust is filled with secrets, lies and a sense of menacing unease. Descriptive writing, compelling characters and atmospheric setting are well balanced to produce a tense domestic noir that delivers. More please.
Sam Blake, author of REMEMBER MY NAME
Dark, intense and emotional, this haunting whodunit is utterly chilling, with a real sting in its twisty tail
Irish Times
A slow burning, extremely well-structured psychological thriller
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE HERE
Equal parts tautly woven, chilling, and heartbreaking, Someone You Trust is a thriller that will take readers on an emotional roller coaster. With ratcheting tension and a mounting sense of dread, you might think you know what's happening, but this is a story that will defy your expectations. A must-read for fans of domestic suspense
Kieran Scott, author of REGRETS ONLY
Nothing is what it seems in this creepy, propulsive, atmospheric thriller. I dare you not to read it in one sitting
