The Dark Heart of Crime Fiction: Quieter Than Killing

Thrilled to see this great review for Quieter Than Killing in the Irish Independent at the weekend. Especially pleased that Marnie Rome gets mentioned alongside Jane Casey's Maeve Kerrigan, one of my favourite fictional detectives.

" ... detectives Kerrigan and Rome remain as well rounded, sympathetic and believable as ever, making the pressures under which they're put in the course of duty all the more involving."
