The Judas Heart

The Judas Heart

(2007)
(The third book in the Saxon series)
A novel by

 
The third gripping serial killer thriller from the award-winning author of The Dead

Saxon knew Leon Kaminski back in their days together in the FBI. Now, years later, he suddenly turns up again one sweltering summer in Dublin. What is Kaminski doing in the city? What does he want from Saxon? And what does all this have to do with a notorious inmate on Death Row in Texas and the prison guard who befriended him in his final days?

Saxon has always felt like an outsider in Ireland. This time she's given the chance to finally take a formal role inside the Dublin Metropolitan Police alongside her lover, Chief Superintendent Grace Fitzgerald, as they investiigate the murder of an aspiring young actress, found tied to her bed, naked, stabbed to death in an apparent sex crime.

But which should come first - finding out what happened to Marsha Reed, or uncovering the real reason why Special Agent Kaminski has turned up on Saxon's doorstep after all this time? Or could it be that the two investigations are both headed in the same direction?

REVIEWS

"A new Irish writer in the mould of Nicci French and Mo Hayder" - The Crime Bookseller. "Saxon is one of the more intriguing characters I've read lately and I've been looking for a good series character. I don't think I've been as taken with a female character since Carol O'Connell introduced Kathy Mallory in Mallory's Oracle. As you read Saxon's narration you can almost feel her mind at work, brooding at times, at others furiously racing, rearranging what she knows, trying to fit evidence into a framework. All the while there is Grace Fitzgerald trying to keep her focused and rational... . I really enjoyed this book and rate it one of my top reads (of the year)"- Mack Lundy, Mack Pitches Up. "The Judas Heart is very strong on the atmosphere of a sweltering hot Irish capital and particularly the night-time streets... Black has written a fluent page-turner which is strong on atmosphere (and) sound on plotting" - Reviewing The Evidence. "These books are getting better as the series continues, and the Dublin setting gives the an added attraction for me" - meen-readingjournal.bogspot.co.uk. "The partnership between Eilis O'Hanlon and Ian McConnell could be the start of something big" - The Sunday Times. "I love the relationship in this series between the main character and her lover, the female Detective Chief Superintendent. It is not angst ridden, full of conflict simply because conflict is required in fiction, or overly sweet. It is simply one element of these characters lives, lives that are challenged by questions of career, place, and, of course, murder" - goodreads. "The Judas Heart is one of the best crime thrillers I read (this year)... This is a good, fast-paced story that pulled me in from the beginning and kept me interested throughout ... a cracking good read" - Max, Revish.
