Lucy Black must protect the young and vulnerable . . . but can she protect herself?

Late December. A sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on a train line. Detective Sergeant Lucy Black is called to identify the body. The only clues to the dead teenager's last movements are stored in her mobile phone and on social media - and it soon becomes clear that her 'friends' were not as trustworthy as she thought.

Lucy is no stranger to death: she is still haunted by the memory of the child she failed to save, and the killer she failed to put behind bars. And with a new boss scrutinizing her every move, she is determined that - this time - she will leave no margin for error.

Hurt is a tense crime thriller about how, in the hands of a predator, trust can turn into terror.

Praise for Little Girl Lost:

'Effortlessly blending Black's personal woes into her professional life, McGilloway weaves a taut police procedural in an unadorned style that belies the stories complexity.' Irish Times.

'Cleverly constructed, packed with vibrant and believable characters . . . It confirms him as one of the most original voices in the notably expanding field of Irish crime fiction .' Irish Independent.

'Assured and grittily realistic tale from an author who is being compared to James Lee Burke and Ian Rankin.' Sunday Business Post.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hurt is only Black's second outing, it's a nimbly written and cleverly plotted tale. It's the details of the Derry landscape as much as the investigation into the murder of a teenage girl that held my interest. Give Black a try: this could be the start of a beautiful friendship. * Daily Telegraph *
I thought this book was excellent. The characters were realistic and the setting was painted vividly, if frighteningly... I'd certainly recommend this book both for McGilloway fans and if you just want a good crime book to read. * thecrimewarp *
This a very well-paced story, which ratchets up a gear towards the end. Crime fiction and police procedural fans will enjoy this. Lucy Black is a welcome addition to the ranks of fictional detectives. * randomthingsthroughmyletterbox *
