Too Close to Breathe by Olivia Kiernan: | donkeytime.org: BooksThe number of victims rises, enlarging this first circle. A resolutely dark, moody, and blunt tone is set from the beginning, occasionally leavened with ironic humor. The victim remains resolutely tight-lipped, stone-cold silent; the best and worst witness of her end. A note would allow mourners to hold on to something. Assert blame.

Too Close to Breathe by Olivia Kiernan (Review by Julie Ramhold)
Thank you! A Dublin detective fresh off a case that nearly killed her delves into what looks like a suicide but soon blossoms into a web of murder. For her first case back after a leave of absence, she and her team in the Bureau for Serious Crime confront the death of Eleanor Costello, a microbiologist and part-time university lecturer found hanging in her home. But even as the police close in on a suspect, their net comes up empty—or, in one case, full of yet another body—and it seems like the killer may slip through their fingers.

Added by 4 of our members. Olivia Kiernan's tautly written debut novel immerses listeners in a chilling murder case In a quiet Dublin suburb, within her pristine home, Eleanor Costello is found hanging from a rope. Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan would be more than happy to declare it a suicide. Four months ago, Frankie's pursuit of a killer almost ended her life and she isn't keen on investigating another homicide.
This book is a classic example of a great murder mystery. I found myself trying to solve the case as I read along, and although a couple of turns were sort of predictable, this was still an excellent read. Detective Frankie Sheehan has suffered an attack within the last year, and as she tries to recover, her anxiety is palpable. Every lead she and her partner track down ramps up the excitement and anxiety again. Is this it? And then, when a lead turns into a dead end, the disappointment is so sharp the reader feels that despair as much as Frankie and Baz. This is a carefully calculated story and every direction it takes is purposeful.
