When a beautiful, local teenage girl is found strangled in the cold, dark woods a mile from town. The prime suspect is the seemingly-gentle drifter who found Tanya’s body.

 

Detective Finnegan Beck, recently demoted from his high-powered job in Dublin and relocated in disgrace to the small Irish town of Cross Beg, is the police officer in charge, and he seems to be the only person who can’t escape the feeling that Tanya wasn’t killed at random.

 

As he digs deeper into the shadows of Cross Beg, he begins to realise it isn’t the sleepy backwater he’d first believed. Everyone here has something to hide. Tanya had a boyfriend, whose name no one knew. A best friend with a loose relationship with the truth. And a habit she thought she’d kept hidden from everyone.

 

But, just as Beck believes he is making progress, the body of one of the suspects is found drowned in the river. Is the killer just getting started?

 

Everyone in the town seems to have something they would die to protect. But who has a secret they’d kill for?

 

This debut novel from a powerful new Irish voice is the first in a gripping series that will feature the brilliant, haunted Detective Finnegan Beck who won’t rest until justice is found. Perfect for fans of LJ Ross, Joy Ellis and Patricia Gibney.

‘Bloody brilliant... Oh my goodness me... one seriously, fantastically and brilliantly written book with cracking characters and cracking storylines. I was hooked on this book from the first moment I met Detective Finnegan Beck... addictive... simply unputdownable... the pages were turning that quickly that it was almost as if the pages were turning themselves... the world could have ended and I wouldn’t have known... several times that I almost found myself reading through my fingers... In short, I totally and utterly flipping well loved reading ‘Where She Lies’... simply outstanding... a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.’ Ginger Book Geek
