Loss and revenge run deep and strong in this powerful and emotional novel. After the loss of her husband and son to a terrorist’s bomb Danni wants revenge – but what happens when you meet the killer face to face? Fast-paced, emotionally pitch-perfect and with a heart-wrenching ending, Kiss the Bullet is a thriller as gripping, intelligent and satisfying as they come from the author of Ties That Bind.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE MAN WHO KILLED YOUR FAMILY?
It is eighteen years since Danni’s husband and three-year-old son were killed by an IRA bomb in central Glasgow, and still she can’t move on from the tragedy that has blighted her life. As a fresh wave of violence sweeps through Ireland, she decides she needs revenge.
A journey into the dark heart of the criminal underworld brings her face to face with the sinister Pearson and his enigmatic, one-time accomplice Johnny. As Danni struggles to keep hold of her sense of purpose in a world where the idealist and the psychopath sometimes seem indistinguishable, she is unwillingly drawn into a battle to save the life of Myra, a young prostitute. But who is Johnny and why is he helping her? Did he plant the bomb that killed her family? And most disturbingly, what exactly are her feelings for him?
