Description

"Readers of Paula Hawkins, Tana French, and Ruth Ware will love this exceptionally well-crafted thriller."—Library Journal (starred review)

"A very satisfying and twisty tale."—Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Edgar Award nominee for Best Novel

Her first love confessed to five murders ... but the truth was so much worse.

Will Hurley was an attractive, charming, and impressive student at Dublin's elite St. John's College—and Ireland's most prolific serial killer. Having stalked his five young victims, he drowned them in the muddy waters of the Grand Canal. Sentenced to life imprisonment when he was just nineteen, Will is locked away in the city's Central Psychiatric Hospital.

Freshman Alison Smith moved to the Big Smoke to enroll in St. John's and soon fell hard for Will Hurley. Her world bloomed ... and then imploded when Liz, her best friend, became the latest victim of the Canal Killer—and the Canal Killer turned out to be the boy who'd been sleeping in her bed. Alison fled to the Netherlands and, in ten years, has never once looked back.

When a young woman's body is found in the Grand Canal, Garda detectives visit Will to see if he can assist them in solving what looks like a copycat killing. Instead, Will tells them he has something new to confess—but there's only one person he's prepared to confess it to.

The last thing Alison wants is to be pulled back into the past she's worked so hard to leave behind. Reluctantly, she returns to the city she hasn't set foot in for more than a decade to face the man who murdered the woman she was supposed to become.

Only to discover that, until now, Will has left out the worst part of all ...

        Starred review from December 11, 2017
        Alison Smith, the narrator of this exceptional thriller from Irish author Howard (Distress Signals), is a student at St. John’s College in Dublin. After a friend of Alison’s becomes the latest victim of a serial killer who knocks women on the head and drowns them in Dublin’s Grand Canal, Alison’s boyfriend, 19-year-old Will Hurley, confesses to the crimes. Alison flees to the Netherlands to escape the shame she feels over not knowing the “true” Will. Ten years later, two women are found in the Grand Canal, killed in the very same way as those before. At the request of two detectives, Alison reluctantly returns to Dublin, where the imprisoned Will claims to have information pertaining to the murders that he will tell only her. Thrust back into the nightmare of her past, Alison assists the police in their effort to uncover whether a copycat killer is at work—or whether Will was unjustly convicted. Howard keeps the reader turning the pages right through to the shocking and satisfying resolution. Agent: Jane Gregory, Gregory & Company (U.K.).

      • content: Three accomplished Irish narrators present the story of a young woman, Alison, whose charming boyfriend was convicted of murdering coeds in Dublin and throwing them into the Grand Canal. Alana Kerr Collins portrays a fractured but resolute Alison, whose circumscribed existence in the Netherlands is interrupted by a request to return to Ireland to help gather information pertinent to a new series of canal murders. Listeners hear her nervous, reluctant voice and her anxiety about opening old wounds. Alan Smyth and Gary Furlong bring to life a mad murderer, the imprisoned boyfriend, a likable police detective, and other characters, using voices that sound genuine and natural. The multiple perspectives fill out the narrative of this engrossing psychological suspense. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
