cruel deeds cover

We’re thrilled that last week’s featured book, Rachael English’s fabulous A Letter Home, has shot into the No 1 slot in the overall Top 20!

This week we’re featuring Cork author Catherine Kirwan’s Cruel Deeds, which has slipped into the original fiction chart on just a half week’s sales. The second outing for Kirwan’s fabulous character, solicitor Finn Fitzpatrick, Catherine Ryan Howard describes Cruel Deeds as ‘A propulsive mystery that feels both fresh and assured’. With its atmospheric Cork setting, Kirwan takes us inside the legal world and keeps us hooked…

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 dead 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 left to trust?
