Blink by Niamh O'Connor
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Niamh O’Connor is one of Ireland’s best crime writers and this is the fourth in her Jo Birmingham series, set in Dublin. But it’s an interesting almost-departure as Blink features Jo but only as a bit part and this is much more than ever about two of her colleagues. Fans of Jo may be disappointed by this but it means that there are few barriers to starting here if the plot intrigues and you haven’t read the rest of the series.

Synopsis

Blink by Niamh O'Connor

A hitman DI Gavin Sexton is looking into a spate of teenage suicides when he encounters a young girl, paralyzed with locked-in syndrome. Unable to communicate in any other way, she blinks the words: 'I hired a hitman'. Was it suicide? Recovering from loss of sight, Sexton's old partner DI Jo Birmingham is keeping her promise to investigate the apparent suicide of Sexton's own wife, Maura. But why does he no longer seem to care? Secrets thrive on stigma Sexton believes the girl who cannot move has suffered enough. But how far should he go to protect her? And what if Jo discovers an uncomfortable truth? Blink will grab you from the first page, and won't let go.
