Summary

Meet Cathy Connolly - cop, kickboxing champion and now a soon-to-be mother....

Detective Garda Cathy Connolly's life has taken an unexpected turn. Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, Cathy's trying to decide how she's going to balance motherhood with the very real dangers of life on the job, especially when her latest case isn't as straightforward as it first appears.

Called to what seems like a routine break-in, Cathy discovers the bones of a baby concealed in the hem of an old wedding dress. When the dress' original owner, Lavinia Grant, is found dead in a Dublin suburb, Cathy is drawn deep into a complex web of secrets and lies spun by three generations of women.

Meanwhile, a fugitive killer has already left two dead in execution style killings across the Atlantic - and now he's in Dublin with old scores to settle. Can the team track him down before he kills again? Struggling with her own secrets, Cathy doesn't know how dangerous - and personal - this case is about to become....

Aoife Mcmahon is amazing as usual

Pretty drawn out and slow to progress but interesting nonetheless and good for my car journeys.

Give it a chance!

The first hour or two I was a little lost as to what was happening. There were so many characters I couldn’t make head nor tail. However it all started to come together and it was bloody brilliant! Already have the next book in the series downloading. I live very close to where this book is set so it’s very eerie for me but I loved it.

A dective novel with a bit more depth

I enjoyed the nunerous characters, descriptions & sub plots; caused me to listen more attentively & thus added to my enjoyment. Characters with depth & complexity, perfect for a wet afternoon painting.
