This one kept me turning the pages. I warmed to Reilly straight away. Okay, a bit of fine-tuning needed but I was entertained and enjoyed the suspense.

I loved the book!
The forensic detailing and riley's character are just awesome! I love how the story escalates from being about just a single murder to a series of them!
But there are few loop holes or rather some things that doesn't fit into her character, but then again they're minor and wouldn't affect the story much.
Overall, a fabulous book that will keep you glued, worth a read!

Review by: David H. Keith on March 12, 2014 :
I enjoyed this. The protagonist is believable, as are most of the characters. That the story takes place in Dublin makes it almost ideal - Glasgow or Edinburgh would have been more to this Scotsman's liking, but I still enjoyed this story immensely. Ireland is a gorgeous country and any story that takes place there is one I will gladly read.

Taut, suspenseful, with plenty of clues for the whodunnit buff and forensics enough to please all but the most hardened CSI addict, it delves deeply into the psyche of a true monster - not the Hollywood caricature but the real monsters among us, and there are plenty. Hill has done a masterful job of showing just how horrible these real-life monsters are.

My only complaint - and, sadly, enough to prevent me giving a solid five stars, is the formatting. Missing words, improper punctuation, and far too many grammatical errors for it to be a case of simple typos made the story difficult to stay with for me by interrupting the narrative flow. That's too bad, too, because Hill is one fine story-teller.

I recommend this book, although with the caveat to expect potholes caused by all those missing words, etc.
