Respected scientist Dr Eleanor Costello is found hanged in her immaculate home: the scene the very picture of a suicide.

DCS Frankie Sheehan is handed the case, and almost immediately spots foul play.

As Frankie strives to paint a picture of the killer, and their victim, she starts to sense they are part of a larger, darker
canvas, on which the lines between the two blur.

Olivia Kiernan's debut is a bold, brilliant thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.
