'Cracking . . . Taut, gripping and beautifully written' Steve Cavanagh 'An ending you definitely won't see coming' JP Delaney 'Drew me in from the first chapter . . . This should be one of the books of the year' James Delargy DCS Frankie Sheehan is experiencing a crisis of confidence - having become wary of the instincts that have led her face-to-face with a twisted killer and brought those she loves into direct jeopardy. She is summoned to the rural Wicklow mountains, where local mother of two, Debbie Nugent, has been reported missing. A bloody crime scene is discovered at Debbie's home, yet no body. Not only is foul play suspected, but Debbie's daughter, Margot, has been living with the scene for three days. Aware her team cannot convict Margot on appearances alone, Sheehan launches a full investigation into Debbie Nugent's life. And, before long, the discrepancies within Debbie's disappearance suggest that some families are built on dangerous deceptions, with ultimately murderous consequences. 'If Looks Could Kill raises the bar once more. Superb plotting, excellent character development and no one does setting better, in my opinion. Clever, stylish, cinematic. And bloody entertaining' Caz Frear 'A superior crime thriller filled with fascinating characters and laced with dark wit. The ending was both shocking and satisfying. Highly recommended' Mark Edwards 'What an absolute winner of a book. Superbly plotted, with characters I immediately want to hang out with more, and an immensely satisfying yet real conclusion. Five stars from me' Gytha Lodge

La nostra recensione

A tense, vivid and pacy police procedural, shot through with humanity and a touch of humour as only Olivia Kiernan can - it gripped me to the final page. -- Rachel Edwards Top notch crime-writing - smart, fast-paced and filled with a cracking cast of characters. I devoured If Looks Could Kill in a single weekend. -- TM Logan Gritty, twisty and atmospheric, with an ending you definitely won't see coming. -- JP Delaney Olivia Kiernan's third novel is quite simply her best. Her clean yet richly satisfying prose sings on the page. Stylish, smart and oh-so-compelling, Kiernan is fast becoming one of the brightest stars in the Irish crime fiction firmament. -- Fiona Cummins A wonderfully rich lead character and a story that twists in unforeseen directions. -- Claire McGowan A superior crime thriller filled with f?ascinating characters and laced with dark wit. The ending was both shocking and satisfying. Highly recommended. -- Mark Edwards What an absolute winner of a book. Superbly plotted, with characters I immediately want to hang out with more, and an immensely satisfying yet real conclusion. Five stars from me. -- Gytha Lodge If Looks Could Kill raises the bar once more. Superb plotting, excellent character development and no one does setting better, in my opinion. Clever, stylish, cinematic. And bloody entertaining. -- Caz Frear A gripping, page?-turner with bags of atmosphere, in which the wilds of Wicklow provide a haunting backdrop to the twists and turns of DCS Frankie Sheehan's latest investigation. -- Andrea Carter Excellent . . . Superbly controlled with a strong voice. The prose is lean and the atmosphere tense, just the way I like it! -- Ali Land The heir to Tana French's throne. -- Irish Times Olivia Kiernan's writing is brave and unflinching, dark and unsentimental. Read this one with the lights ON! * Liz Nugent * A beautifully written book that drew me in from the first chapter and dragged me at pace towards a thrilling conclusion . . . This should be one of the books of the year. -- James Delargy I love DCS Frankie Sheehan, and her presence really fizzes on the pages of If Looks Could Kill. Olivia Kiernan has done it again! -- Clare Askew Quite honestly one of the best police procedurals I've ever read. Beautifully written, utterly compelling and perfectly plotted. -- Phoebe Locke Cracking . . . Taut, gripping and beautifully written. -- Steve Cavanagh
