"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.
