Description of this Book

YOU FIND OUT WHO DID IT ON THE VERY FIRST PAGE. ON THE LAST PAGE, YOU'LL FIND OUT WHY.'Enthralling - Spain dissects her characters' secrets with razor-sharp precision' JP Delaney, author of The Girl BeforeLate one night a man walks into the luxurious home of disgraced banker Harry McNamara and his wife Julie. The man launches an unspeakably brutal attack on Harry as a horror-struck Julie watches, frozen by fear. Just an hour later the attacker, JP Carney, has handed himself in to the police. He confesses to beating Harry to death, but JP claims that the assault was not premeditated and that he didn't know the identity of his victim. With a man as notorious as Harry McNamara, the detectives cannot help wondering, was this really a random act of violence or is it linked to one of Harry's many sins: corruption, greed, betrayal?This gripping psychological thriller will have you questioning, who - of Harry, Julie and JP - is really the guilty one? And is Carney's surrender driven by a guilty conscience or is his confession a calculated move in a deadly game?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review An absolute cracker of a book, compulsive, deviously plotted and intense - I will be recommending this to everyone * Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner * I loved this twisty slice of domestic noir * Claire McGowan, author of Blood Tide * Jo Spain is such a talent. The Confession had me in its thrall from the first page, revealing the dark side of the Celtic Tiger * Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill * Brilliant! Fast paced, well researched and sensitive. Jo Spain is a sparkling new talent! * Irish Examiner * Fiendishly clever . . . and a big fat twist is lobbed into the ending like a hand grenade * Sunday Independent * A climax that is shocking and unexpected * The Times * Enthralling - Spain dissects her characters' secrets with razor-sharp precision * JP Delaney * Praise for Jo Spain
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
