Product Details


A Better Homes and Gardens “Best Books to Read This April” 

“Tightly plotted, fast-paced read with enough twists to keep you guessing right to the end.”
—Better Homes and Gardens

“There are shades of Ross Macdonald in McTiernan’s sophomore novel: an austere patriarch, successive generations of a family manifesting the same flawed gene, a self-crippling lust for power, money, and status. . . . A complex, densely plotted murder investigation.” 
—The Irish Times

“Fans of Irish cop novels, like those by Adrian McKinty, will be happy to discover this up-and-coming author.”

“The complexities of the relationships within the [police] department, and the tensions between Reilly and Emma, are rich enough to carry the reader through this story and into the next one. McTiernan’s cautionary tale about money, prestige, and the secretive world of pharmaceutical research will resonate with many.” 
—Publishers Weekly
