Publisher's Summary

A deadly past refuses to stay buried in Olivia Kiernan’s masterful new novel.

Death is no stranger to Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan, but she isn’t the only one from her small, coastal suburb to be intimately acquainted with it. Years ago, teenager Seán Hennessey shocked the tight-knit community when he was convicted of the brutal murder of his parents and attempted slaying of his sister, though he always maintained his innocence. Now, Seán is finally being released from prison - but when his newfound freedom coincides with the discovery of two bodies, the alleged connection between the cases only serves to pull Frankie further from answers even as it draws her closer to her town’s hidden darkness. 

With a television documentary revisiting Seán’s sentence pushing the public’s sympathies into conflict on a weekly basis, a rabid media pressuring the police like never before, and a rising body count, Frankie will need all of her resources if she is not only to catch a killer, but put to rest what really happened all those years ago.

A dark, irresistible cocktail of secrets, murder, and family, Olivia Kiernan’s latest is an impossible-to-pause triumph.

Critic Reviews

“Tana French fans are a ready audience for the second in Kiernan’s series, which unravels murder cases undertaken by Dublin detective Frankie Sheehan.... Kiernan’s smart writing carefully doles out twists and clues as the puzzle comes to an unexpected and nervous-making ending. Along the way, she paints a rich picture of contemporary Dublin life, its social pretenses and nothing-to-lose characters both crashing against the justice system. Readers will watch for more from Kiernan.” (Booklist)

“[A] well-paced sequel...[protagonist] Frankie’s insights at crime scenes, her close relationships with squad members, and the vivid picture of Dublin lift this police procedural.” (Publisher's Weekly

"Olivia Kiernan’s writing is brave and unflinching, dark and unsentimental. Read this one with the lights ON!" (Nationally and internationally best-selling author Liz Nugent)
