Some games can be deadly

'Kiernan's best yet. You'll be gripped from the minute you open The Murder Box . . .' Cara Hunter
'A real page-turner with an ingenious plot' Patricia Gibney
'A superior police procedural' Sarah Vaughan

At first, Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan believes the murder mystery game sent to her office is a birthday gift from one of her colleagues. But when Frankie studies the game's contents, she notices a striking resemblance between the 'murder victim' and missing twenty-two-year-old Lydia Callin.

As Frankie and her team investigate, a series of grisly crimes connected to the game are discovered across Dublin city and Lydia's involvement with a shadowy network of murder mystery players becomes clear.

On the hunt for Lydia's murderer, Frankie is drawn more deeply into the game. Every successful move brings her closer to the killer. But the real question is not what happens should she lose -- but what happens if she wins.

'Tight, tense, pacy and full of twists. A cracker' Neil Lancaster

'Very clever, chilling and brilliantly written! LOVED it!' Karen Hamilton

'Clever, shocking, and psychologically astute - this deserves to be huge' Caz Frear

'Grabs you by the throat from the first page and doesn't let go until the last' Araminta Hall

'An original concept that kept me utterly gripped from start to finish' Nikki Smith

'Sleekly written, atmospheric, and beautifully macabre' Charlotte Philby

'Authentic, taut, intriguing storytelling' Mari Hannah

'You won't be able to close it until you've solved the puzzle' Trevor Wood
