Taboo Synopsis

Forensic investigator Reilly Steel, Quantico-trained and California-born and bred, imagined Dublin to be a far cry from bustling San Francisco, a sleepy backwater where she can lay past ghosts to rest and start anew. She's arrived in Ireland to drag the Irish crime lab into the 21st century, plus keep tabs on her Irish-born father who's increasingly seeking solace in the bottle after a past family tragedy. But a brutal serial killer soon puts paid to that. When a young man and woman are found dead in an apartment, the gunshot wounds on their naked bodies suggest a suicide pact. But Reilly's instincts are screaming that something's seriously amiss, and as more bodies are discovered, the team soon realises that a twisted murderer is at work, one who seeks to upset society's norms in the most sickening way imaginable...

Taboo Press Reviews

'The novel derives its page-turning quality from the rapid pace of events as the investigation gathers momentum'
Irish Times

'CASEY HILL is a marketing dream. Taboo , the debut novel, presses all the commercial buttons: it's a police procedural featuring a feisty young woman, the forensic investigator Reilly Steel, who travels from her native California to the mean streets of Dublin. Here, she finds herself the target of a resourceful serial killer, the tale given a frisson of sexual tension via Reilly's relationship with Garda Detective Chris Delaney. So far, so good, but Casey Hill has more to offer. Casey Hill is the open pseudonym of husband-and-wife writing partnership Kevin and Melissa Hill. Young, attractive and media-friendly, the pair have an unusually strong publishing platform for debutants, given that Melissa Hill is the (self-described) author of eight bestselling chick-lit novels'
