This is book 3 in this series featuring DS Louise Kennedy . The story is set in Dublin and centers around the sudden and suspicious death of a woman who has a very serious illness . Could it be murder or was it suicide ?? The deceased had a horrible husband who she had been separated from for a while but now he is under the glare of Gardaí in the investigation . I really loved the idea behind this story , the more I read the better it got . The plot was interesting from the very first chapter , and as the story goes on it gives us part of the story from different peoples perspectives and another part in flashbacks to before the death of the victim , which I very much enjoyed . There was a couple of people in this book who’s motives seemed shady to me so I was keen to keep reading to see was one of them the killer .... I could not have been more surprised by the ending of this story when everything is revealed and it was so worth waiting for ! I think if you love a good detective story with a strong female detective then you will love this , seeing the human side of DS Kennedy and what she was personally going through during the case makes you love her even more .
I received this book in exchange for a review from Netgalley .
