Emotions run high when a Dublin language school becomes the focus of a murder inquiry
A young woman’s lifeless body is found in an old shed on the banks of Dublin’s Royal Canal.
When detectives find out that the victim is Spanish, attention falls on the language schools in the area.
With her superior DI Aidan Burke under investigation for a previous case, and in a foul mood, DS Fiona Moore is left to do the leg work.
She butts heads with the evasive and detached school principal, Edith Walker, and struggles to get the victim’s fellow students to talk.
Has some depraved individual got an eye for pretty young women from overseas or is something else afoot? More importantly, can Moore catch the killer before they strike again?

About the Author

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth writing about. My stories are all based in various parts of Ireland, and reflect Irish humour and style.
