DCS Frankie Sheehan does not wish to linger on the grisly scene before her eyes. Two mutilated corpses. In a church.
Meanwhile, a 17-year-old case is playing out on a TV documentary, historical police errors are being exposed daily. Frankie's superior, commissioner Donna Hegarty, makes no bones about who she expects to clean things up in both cases . . .
But Frankie pinpoints just what is making her so nervous: the fact that anyone could be the next victim when justice is the killer.
The Killer In Me is a fast-paced thriller in which lies are safer than the truth, the past is never far from the present, and the ability to kill could well, it seems, live in everyone.

She's so clever . . . it's no mean feat to write a crime novel that's as sad as it is menacing! Such sharp, clean writing and so atmospheric. -- Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies
Olivia Kiernan writes with a rare mastery. Her eye for detail is keen, her prose feels effortlessly brilliant, her plot dazzles and yet the message shines true. A total triumph. -- Rachel Eedwards, author of Darlin
The Killer in Me is a tense, fast-paced thriller, the second in Olivia Kiernan's crime series set in Dublin. It's well-plotted, cleverly written and has a great set of characters especially the complex and compelling DCS Frankie Sheehan. An excellent read. -- Jenny Quintana, author of The Missing Girl
Frankie Sheehan is a wonderful creation and I loved her second outing. The locations, characters, and scenes in The Killer in Me are vivid and fully realised. The plot intense, intellectual and intriguing. This was a very satisfying read and I loved it. -- Amanda Reynolds, author of Lying To You
Completely gripping - an intelligent, beautifully written thriller which kept me guessing. Frankie is such a great, complex lead and this is another brilliantly knotty case for her to unravel. -- Phoebe Locke, author of The Tall Man
An outstanding, thought provoking and gripping police procedural which kept me guessing. Exquisite writing, brilliant characterisation and thought provoking to boot. Highly recommended! -- Claire Allan, author of Apple of My Eye
Tana French fans are a ready audience for the second in Kiernan's series, which unravels murder cases undertaken by Dublin detective Frankie Sheehan . . . She paints a rich picture of contemporary Dublin life, its social pretenses and nothing-to-lose characters both crashing against the justice system. Readers will watch for more from Kiernan. * Booklist *
A sophisticated, immersive and layered police procedural which knocks it out of the park. -- Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle
Olivia Kiernan has done it again. DCS Frankie Sheehan is fast becoming one of my favourite investigators and I was with her every step of the way in this, her second case in the series. Expect sharply observed details, a gritty, compelling plot and note-perfect dialogue. -- Jess Kidd
