3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Forensic investigator Reilly Steel, Quantico-trained and California-born and bred, imagined Dublin to be a far cry from bustling San Francisco, a sleepy backwater where she can lay past ghosts to rest and start anew.

She's arrived in Ireland to drag the Irish crime lab into the 21stcentury, plus keep tabs on her Irish-born father who's increasingly seeking solace in the bottle after a past family tragedy.

But a brutal serial killersoon puts paid to that. When a young man and woman are found dead in an apartment, the gunshot wounds on their naked bodies suggest a suicide pact.

But Reilly's instincts are screaming that something's seriously amiss, and as more bodies are discovered, the team soon realises that a twisted murderer is at work, one who seeks to upset society's norms in the most sickening way imaginable...

Review by

This was an interesting and thrilling story that was hard to put down. The premise of murders being committed according to society's taboos was a fascinating one. My only gripe is that the author made it a little too obvious as to the identity of the killer. Otherwise, this was a worthwile read that did not require too much thinking and I would recommend it in a pinch.
