Nic wakes up naked and bound, body covered in cuts. A shadow passes the window. He’s back. He picks up a knife but right then Nic wrenches free and runs. Detectives Harvey and Birch arrive at the scene hours later. There’s no sign of the killer. Like it never happened.

Authors Biography

Kerry has had numerous short stories published internationally, including some prize-winners, but her heart lies with novel-writing. Her crime series is set in Belfast and in the rolling County Down hills she sees from her window as she writes.


“A wickedly sharp debut psychological thriller from an author to watch.” Crime Fiction Critic
This book is fast moving and very tense . . . I also thought the writing was very good for a first-time author and would probably read her next book” Hannelore, NetGalley
“This gripping, graphic debut crime thriller set in Northern Ireland reels with real-life grit, twists and tangled tension.” Joanne, LoveReading

  7. This is a stunning debut by a new crime writer – I can’t remember when I last fell into a novel that took control of me so completely. Kerry never let up on the tension and every twist brought another turn and another heart-wrenching leap. Stunning work!

  10. This book kept me on edge to the very last word. So looking forward to move thrilling books from Kerry !!!!!!!!!!

  11. This is fast paced, gripping, an excellent read!

  12. This is an original crime mystery book. I’ve never seen a book which focused so little on the police and so much on the victim. Who, to be honest, turns out not to be as victimized as someone would have liked her to be.

  13. I had to read this book in fits and spurts and put it down at inopportune times because of life and work, but it was still edge-of-seat suspense all the way!

    The first page.

  19. A gripping and enjoyable read. Great characters and plot.

  20. Got me back into crime!
