'A fabulous closed-room mystery that will keep you guessing' - DENISE MINA'Fabulous Dublin-based crime. Very much in the vein of Tana French' - JO SPAIN'This creeps up on you until you're hooked' - HEATTHEY DID IT TO THEMSELVESBUT SOMEONE WAS WATCHINGThe Macnamara sisters hadn't been seen for months before anyone noticed. It was Father Timoney who finally broke down the door, who saw what had become of them. Berenice was sitting in her armchair, surrounded by religious tracts. Rosaleen had crawled under her own bed, her face frozen in terror. Both had starved themselves to death.

Francesca Macnamara returns to Dublin after decades in the US to find her family in ruins. Meanwhile, Detectives Vincent Swan and Gina Considine are convinced that there is more to the deaths than suicide. Because what little evidence there is, shows that someone was watching the sisters die...

A compelling mystery that will keep you reading late into the night, perfect for readers of Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Tana French and Jo Spain.
