4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A hitman DI Gavin Sexton is looking into a spate of teenage suicides when he encounters a young girl, paralyzed with locked-in syndrome.

Unable to communicate in any other way, she blinks the words: 'I hired a hitman'.

Was it suicide? Recovering from loss of sight, Sexton's old partner DI Jo Birmingham is keeping her promise to investigate the apparent suicide of Sexton's own wife, Maura.

But why does he no longer seem to care? Secrets thrive on stigma Sexton believes the girl who cannot move has suffered enough.

But how far should he go to protect her? And what if Jo discovers an uncomfortable truth? Blink will grab you from the first page, and won't let go.

Review by

I received a copy of Blink from the author, Niamh O'Connor, in return for an honest review.DI Gavin Sexton is investigating a spate of teenage suicides when he meets Lucy, school friend of the deceased who is paralysed with locked-in syndrome following a car crash. What appears initially to be the result of some kind of suicide club turns out to be something entirely different indeed. Sexton needs to unravel the many secrets surrounding the investigation to uncover the terrible truth. This novel had me hooked from the start and pulled me in to the case as I experienced that 'just one more chapter' effect in the early hours of the morning.Blink is certainly enticing, living up to the 'realistic and gripping' Lynda La Plante quote on the front cover. 4.5/5
