Dublin’s notorious Canal Killer, Will Hurley, is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal. Though detectives suspect they are dealing with a copycat, they turn to Will for help. He claims he has the information the police need, but will only give it to one person – the girl he was dating when he committed his horrific crimes. Alison Smith has spent the last decade abroad, putting her shattered life in Ireland far behind her. But when she gets a request from Dublin imploring her to help prevent another senseless murder, she is pulled back to face the past – and the man – she’s worked so hard to forget.
I really enjoyed this one! The story was so good and really compelling. I love books set in Ireland- I can usually visualise the places the author is describing. This one was set in Dublin City centre so it was easy enough to imagine the streets they were on. I really liked the characters in this one. Their relationships and issues were so easy to get into and I was genuinely interested in what happened with them. Alison had been through a lot ten years before but the book shows her finally dealing with what happened. It was interesting to see how she finally dealt with it after years of suppressing it. I found the story so easy to read. I liked the ending and how the whole story came together. I wasn’t surprised at the ending, I had an inkling for a while how it was going to turn out. It was still exciting though and I would definitely recommend it.
