S that Eleanor guarded her secrets as closely in life as she does in deathAs the investigation grows challenging Frankie can't help but feel that something doesn't fit And when another woman is found murdered the same paint on her corpse Frankie knows that nraveling Eleanor's life is the only way to find the murderer before he claims another victim or finishes the fate Frankie only just managed to escapeEngrossing complex and atmospheric Olivia Kiernan's debut novel will leave readers breathless. Olivia Kiernan shows a lot of promise in this debut and series opener based primarily in Dublin it features some horrifying murders A mesmerising mixture of murder betrayal and secrets this is opener based primarily in Dublin it features some horrifying murders A mesmerising mixture of murder betrayal and secrets this is police procedural that I very much enjoyed DCS Frankie Sheehan feels like a character who has her own baggage and story to tell I do appreciate it when the investigators in a book are fleshed out in such a way as is done here The author does a great job of developing her characters throughout the bookI kept
guessing and each time was proved wrong which is the ideal and each time was proved wrong which is the ideal a title from the crime thriller genre It is now so hard to rise to the top of this genre as there are so many authors writing crime now There are so many with a lot of them being just mediocre This is definitely above average but it didn t blow me away I hope to see Kiernan publishing Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan returns to the job after an horrific assault and is handed a case that on the surface looks like a suicide It doesn t take long for her to determine that this is anything but a self inflicted death Throughout the story Frankie flashes back to what happened to her while answering a call for police assistance Her plight was gradually revealed sometimes overlapping into the current investigation All the while she and her team are challenged with puzzling clues that lead them down dark paths and to suspects that hit close to home for Frankie It was tough for me to connect with her or even judge her skills as it was clear that often she was either projecting her own issues or refusing to accept truths about people she knew personally The case however was extremely interesting drawing me in slowly and building excitement It all culminates ite nicely entwining around the trial of the man accused of attacking Frankie My issues with Frankie aside I just thought she came back to work too soon this series has high potential as she has a strong team I m interested in seeing how she merited such a meteoric rise to her position and seeing her in action without the baggage she carried in this one I really liked the narrator who seemed to capture the main character perfectly and managed a host of accents and other characters distinctively It s a really good story 35 starsI received an advance copy from the publisher in exchange for an Black Bottom Stomp unbiased review This is the first of a series featuring Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan Frankie was injured during her last case and is obviously still feeling traumatised by the events especially as she has to deal with the forthcoming case in Court However she will have little time to dwell on events as a new case is about to take over her thoughts and her timeDr Eleanor Costello was a successful and focused academic microbiologist Found hanging at her home her death initially seems to be a suicide but turns out to be murder Before long Frankie and Detective Baz Harwood are in the midst of a disturbing investigation which features the Dark Web and a site called Black Widow There are those who flirt with danger who wish to experience death and you really have a sense of thenderbelly of the internet with dark chat rooms that target the young and vulnerableAlthough this was a promising debut novel I must admit that I was not overwhelmed by it However one of the things that I did like was the way the author makes it clear how those in the police force who ndertake to protect the public are affected by the cases they investigate With Frankie who finds that this case touches on people and places she knew as a child this is even apparent Overall a good start to a series with an interesting central character Rated 35 For a first novel really damn good A brand new author has just blown the socks off of

Oes have some Tempting Kate (Regency Quartet, uirks to it The author chose aniue manner to develop her main character Detective Frankie Sheehan Many times in the first few chapters you may think perhaps you were reading another book in a seriesHowever we are getting flashbacks to another case along with hints of insight and gut feelings that many detectives A really rather excellent crime thriller from Olivia Kiernan with an engaging and often fascinating main protagonist a cleverly plotted mystery and the start of a new series so really all to the goodI found Frankie to be a terrific anchor to the story You Feel There Is feel there is lot to get to know about her which is always the best way to start off the writing is beautifully immersive and the killer dark and dangerously compelling Plenty of twists and turns along the way but what I liked about it was they were all embedded into the plot rather than just randomly arriving the investigative elements are very authentic feelingOverall a very very good read indeed I will be reviewing this fully closer to publication dateRecommended highly for crime fans There s just something about a flawed protagonist that I just love Frankie is certainly that After dealing with a horrible experience from her past case she s back and what should be a run of the mill suicide case turns into a murder case that puts her right back into the danger she was hoping to avoid coming back into the forceA solid debut series but doesn t really give you anything different from most procedurals out there The author does showcase PTSD and the lasting effects of a traumatic event and how it impacts every part of a person s life And I do love the mention and incorporation of anything dark web I m so curious about this by the way Does it really exist I m sure it does Would I ever be curious enough to go delving in Doubtful very doubtful The book does provide solid detective work over some out of the ordinary solving of a case that we tend to see and I appreciate the authenticity of thisI will say that while I enjoyed the story line I did feel that it dragged in some places and the incorporation of Frankie s past could have been a bit seamless For a minute I was confused on whether I was reading about a new victim and where that came from and then it began to make sense and then it got darker and I DO LIKE DARK Frankie has been through the wringer and I fear for her safety for any future entanglements that may come with other casesLovers of police procedurals will be drawn to this new series Let s see where the author takes Frankie on her journey shall weThank you to Dutton books
