Publisher's Summary

Meet Cathy Connolly - cop, kickboxing champion and now a soon-to-be mother....

Detective Garda Cathy Connolly's life has taken an unexpected turn. Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, Cathy's trying to decide how she's going to balance motherhood with the very real dangers of life on the job, especially when her latest case isn't as straightforward as it first appears.

Called to what seems like a routine break-in, Cathy discovers the bones of a baby concealed in the hem of an old wedding dress. When the dress' original owner, Lavinia Grant, is found dead in a Dublin suburb, Cathy is drawn deep into a complex web of secrets and lies spun by three generations of women.

Meanwhile, a fugitive killer has already left two dead in execution style killings across the Atlantic - and now he's in Dublin with old scores to settle. Can the team track him down before he kills again? Struggling with her own secrets, Cathy doesn't know how dangerous - and personal - this case is about to become....

great story!

Loved the many parts of this story! And the narrator is fantastic! Found this book by searching the narrator, and am downloading the next in the series now!

Don't waste your time

The author has tried too hard to be clever. There are too many characters in little mini plots. All eventually tie together but it is poorly done. Does not create suspense, only confusion. I found the book pretty boring.

Amazing Suspense and Character Development!

This is the first time in a long while that an author so utterly pulled the rug out from under me with a truly clever plot twist! These characters are made for TV (and I mean that as a sincere compliment)...the players have layers of depth that can be teased out for many novels to come. Thank you, Sam Blake, for a true escape into the world of the Irish Guarda (or Guardi??). And as always, Aoife McMahon was brilliant in her narration...she truly brought your characters to life!

Not a conclusive book

I found this book to be a bit annoying. The main character is pregnant and a kick boxer.. she workouts out kick boxing but is afraid of running while pregnant... And she can't think straight because she is pregnant... and she can basically control her vomiting... Vomits only when convenient.

The accents are not well done.

And this ends like the first section of a book, not like an entire book... the story doesn't conclude, not even close. So I don't think it is worth starting.

book 1

it was good, but a little confusing, I had trouble keeping the characters straight, and then the whole pregnancy thing, through the whole book the author has Steve as the one night, to much partying, stand. but then throws in another character almost at the end? who really is the father of the unborn. I just don't care for such subterfuge. I like a little mystery sure, but introducing the father of the baby at the very end? and having you think it was someone else's through the whole thing? why? had very little to do with this story really. there was no point. plus with the it ends, I bet she loses the baby anyway!
other than that part of this story. it was enjoyable.

Couldn’t stop listening -

BUT, I was not ready for it to end. Thought Emily and Tony would adopt Cat’s baby. At least it was not predictable. Great read. Looking forward to #2.

AWFULL!!!!

I got to chapter 24 before I finally decided that I had had enough. I should have bailed out at chapter two.
Boring story, boring characters. "You will not be able to put it down" the cover said. I should never have picked it up.
One of the very few books I will be requesting a credit for.

dumb, soapy, melodramatic and ends on cliffhanger

also, this is not this book's worst offence, but oooof, the accents are borderline hate crime.
