ABOUT THE BOOK
Perfect for fans of Tana French, Jane Casey and Gillian Flynn
TOO SOON TO SEE
Polished. Professional. Perfect. Dead. Respected scientist Dr Eleanor Costello is found hanging in her immaculate home: the scene the very picture of a suicide.
TOO LATE TO HIDE
DCS Frankie Sheehan is handed the case, and almost immediately spots foul play. Sheehan, a trained profiler, is seeking a murderer with a talent for death.
TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE
As Frankie strives to paint a picture of the killer, and their victim, she starts to sense they are part of a larger, darker canvas, on which the lines between the two blur.
Olivia Kiernan's debut is a bold, brilliant thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.
TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE by Olivia Kiernan is a breathtaking debut crime novel that will leave you desperately wanting more from these engaging characters.
DCS Frankie Sheehan is thrown back into work with a bang when the body of Eleanor Costello is found hanging in her bedroom. What appears to be an open and shut case of suicide is soon realised to be anything but and the hunt for a killer begins. But is this all too much for Sheehan who is still recovering after being brutally attacked in a previous murder case? And as another body is discovered with links to Eleanor, is it possible that there is something darker and deeper linking it all together? As time starts to run out, Frankie and her team are determined to unmask the killer but will they be too late ...
The word gripping does not do this superb thriller justice as I was literally sitting at the edge of my seat as I devoured this story from cover to cover. The characters of Frankie and her team are really likeable and I cared instantly about what Frankie had been through and the sense of family among the Garda team was portrayed excellently. The action and danger are outstanding and there were plenty of twists and turns that I did not see coming which is a must in an excellent thriller. The pace is perfect and when it ended I immediately wanted to jump into another one written by Olivia Kiernan and I'm crossing my fingers that I won't have to wait too long!!
TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE by Olivia Kiernan is a first-class crime fiction novel brimming with depth and intelligence and would make a perfect movie or tv drama. If you want to read one excellent thriller this year, make it TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE.
Olivia Kiernan is the author of TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE, a crime thriller where DCS Frankie Sheehan investigates the murder of Dr Eleanor Costello. At first glance the murder appears uncomplicated but soon spills out onto a dark canvas of fear, lies and murder.
Olivia Kiernan grew up in the Irish countryside, a background which left her with a great appreciation of storytelling. Being almost sensible she shelved aspirations of becoming a writer and embarked on a career in science, spending six years in university studying anatomy and physiology before receiving a BSc in Chiropractic in 2003. She worked in this vein for over a decade, always writing in the evenings after work and completing an MA in Creative Writing through part-time study in 2012.
In 2015, she began writing TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE as part of National Novel Writing Month, polishing off half the first draft by the end of the month-long writing marathon. After hiding the manuscript on her hard drive for close to a year, revisiting it from time to time to add a scene or remove one, she sent it out to agents. Within a month she had signed with a literary agent and in 2017 a dream was realised when TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE sold.
TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE will be released on 5th April 2018 in the UK, and the 3rd of April in the US.
