THE DEAD WON'T STAY SILENT FOREVER...

It's a crisp spring morning when Cass drops her husband, a respected lecturer, to the beach for his medically prescribed swim. While waiting for him, something catches her eye. A young woman runs towards her husband and embraces him - until he holds his hand over her face and she falls down on the stones, dead.

In the backseat of the car, their seven-year-old son sits quietly. When her husband returns, he says nothing. Neither does Cass. Afraid to speak up in the immediate aftermath, Cass embarks on a solitary quest to unravel what has taken place.

Cass is quickly drawn into a web of lies that pulls her back to the previous autumn, when a beautiful Italian postgraduate student finds herself subsumed by an inescapable desire. It's visceral. It's destiny. But sometimes destiny can kill...

Atmospheric, twisty, and propulsive, Her Last Words is an edge-of-your-seat read about obsession and dark secrets coming to light.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Her Last Words opens with a terrific hook . . . told as a hallucinatory fever-dream that seems to move forward with the fitful jerks of a nightmare's narrative . It's a tale of twin compulsions, or derangements . . . a compelling and challenging thriller. * Irish Times *
'A truly gripping plot . . . E. V. Kelly's work will be a welcome addition to the Irish crime scene' * Sinead Crowley *
The characters jump off the page in this tense, claustrophobic and absolutely absorbing thriller. An assured debut from an impressive new voice * Sam Blake *
The mystery is so well plotted that I was second guessing everything and every character. The book has a lyrical tone and it was like I was being carried along on the wave of a symphony . . . A chilling though magical read * Patricia Gibney *
Compelling, clever and chilling . . . A powerful debut which keeps you guessing right to the very end * Michele Forbes *
Breathtakingly paced . . . The plot is layered, complex and tense while remaining frighteningly plausible, leading to a final reveal that is deeply satisfying. E. V. Kelly is a writer to watch, and Her Last Words is a triumphant debut * S. A. Dunphy *
Kelly is a stunning writer . . . The twists and turns of this narrative will have you feeling as anxious, suspicious, and culpable as its characters * Elske Rahill *
Her Last Words is truly surprising. It starts one place and ends up somewhere else entirely, in a way that is original and demands reader attention. * Emily Hourican *
