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 rumours 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 centre of Denise Mina's marvellous 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.
"A shattering first novel... You can't look away from it." - New York Times Book Review.
