Jane Casey’s The Killing Kind is a breakout standalone thriller, exploring stalking, gaslighting and the role of women in society. As a barrister, Ingrid Lewis is used to dealing with tricky clients, but no one has ever come close to John Webster. After Ingrid defended Webster against a stalking charge, he then turned on her – following her, ruining her relationship, even destroying her home.

He tells you you’re special… Now, Ingrid believes she has finally escaped his clutches. But when one of her colleagues is run down on a busy London road, Ingrid is sure she was the intended victim. And then Webster shows up at her door…

He tells you he wants to protect you… Webster claims Ingrid is in danger – and that only he can protect her. Stalker or saviour? Murderer or protector? The clock is ticking for Ingrid to decide. Because the killer is ready to strike again.


‘Jane Casey is a terrific writer.’ The Irish Times


In Catherine Kirwan’s Cruel Deeds, a successful lawyer is found murdered in a derelict house in Cork. Finn Fitzpatrick barely knows Mandy Breslin from the law firm where they both work. Mandy moves in the privileged world of the senior partners. Finn keeps to herself. But Mandy has secrets and, as Finn gets drawn deeper and deeper into her colleague’s life, she finds out that Mandy isn’t such a stranger after all. And that Mandy’s not the only one at the firm with something to hide. Who can Finn turn to when there’s no one left to trust?


Atmospheric and intriguing with a brilliantly relatable heroine and an explosive, gripping conclusion, nothing in Cruel Deeds is quite as it seems. Sam Blake
