Author(s): DENISE MINA

Crime

"A shattering first novel... You can't look away from it."--New York Times Book Review
Maureen O'Donnell wakes up one morning to find her therapist boyfriend murdered in the middle of her living room and herself a prime suspect in a murder case. Desperate to clear her name and to get at the truth, Maureen traces rumors about a similar murder at a local psychiatric hospital, uncovering a trail of deception and repressed scandal that could exonerate her - or make her the next victim.
"I can't think of a more interesting - and less likely - crime hero than Maureen O'Donnell, the damaged but determined center of Denise Mina's marvelous debut mystery. . . . The book bristles with angry energy and the spare urban poetry of its unique language." -"Chicago"" Tribune"
"A groundbreaking book...its emotional rawness and visceral honesty pack a punch more potent than any boxer-turned-PI could provide."--Washington Post Book World
"This raw, powerful story is an exceptional debut." -"Kansas City Star"
"A compelling story. . . . This is the reason we read mysteries." -"Rocky Mountain News"
