Old skeletons and fresh corpses confront DCS Frankie Sheehan in her latest Dublin-based case
Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan does not wish to linger on the grisly scene before her eyes. Two mutilated corpses. In a church. In Clontarf. Her profiling background screams one fact: this is just the beginning of a sickening message.
Meanwhile, a 17-year-old case is playing out on a TV documentary, the convicted professing his innocence and historical police errors being exposed daily in the media. Frankie's superior, commissioner Donna Hegarty, makes no bones about who she expects to clean things up - both in terms of past mishandlings and the present murders.
But not everyone working the cases wants the truth to come out. And the corridors of power have their own vested interest. Soon Frankie pinpoints just what is making her so nervous: the fact that anyone could be the next victim when justice is the killer.
THE KILLER IN ME is a fast-paced thriller in which lies are safer that the truth, the past is never far from the present, and the ability to kill could well, it seems, live in everyone.
Truly first class . . . A fantastic female protagonist in Frankie Sheehan who can stand proud with some of the great fictional detectives. Just knock-out.
A hard-boiled take on Tana French . . . a talent to watch. - Irish Times
Involving, well-written . . . an entertaining series. - Sunday Express
Sassy and thoroughly unconventional. - Irish Independent
Slick, dynamic-paced police procedural, very much in the vein of Tana French . . . Lovely, accomplished writing.
Disorderly, dangerous and above all, driven, Frankie Sheehan is the kind of true-to-life protagonist I love.
Mesmerizing . . . Clever plot. Brilliant characters . . . Everything you need in a great thriller.
A must for fans of Irish crime fiction.
