The Killer in Me is a tense, fast-paced thriller, the second in Olivia Kiernan's crime series set in Dublin. It's well-plotted, cleverly written and has a great set of characters especially the complex and compelling DCS Frankie Sheehan. An excellent read.
She's so clever . . . it's no mean feat to write a crime novel that's as sad as it is menacing! Such sharp, clean writing and so atmospheric.
Olivia Kiernan's writing is brave and unflinching, dark and unsentimental. Read this one with the lights ON!
Olivia Kiernan writes with a rare mastery. Her eye for detail is keen, her prose feels effortlessly brilliant, her plot dazzles and yet the message shines true. A total triumph.
Frankie Sheehan is a wonderful creation and I loved her second outing. The locations, characters, and scenes in The Killer in Me are vivid and fully realised. The plot intense, intellectual and intriguing. This was a very satisfying read and I loved it.
Completely gripping - an intelligent, beautifully written thriller which kept me guessing. Frankie is such a great, complex lead and this is another brilliantly knotty case for her to unravel.
An outstanding, thought provoking and gripping police procedural which kept me guessing. Exquisite writing, brilliant characterisation and thought provoking to boot. Highly recommended!
A sophisticated, immersive and layered police procedural which knock it out of the park.
