Book Launch Of ‘Little Bones’ With Vanessa O’Loughlin

May 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Shane and Vanessa O’Loughlin and Irish State Pathologist Professor Dr. Marie Cassidy to celebrate the launch of Little Bones on Thursday, 19th May at 6pm.

Excitement grows for the launch of Club Member Vanessa O’Loughlin’s debut crime novel Little Bones, the first in a trilogy written under the pen name of Sam Blake and published by Bonnier’s Twenty7 imprint. For fans of Alex Barclay and Niamh O’Connor, Little Bones introduces Cathy Connolly, a kickboxing champion who at twenty four is stationed in Dun Laoghaire and set for a glowing career.

When Garda Cathy Connolly is called to investigate a routine break-in, she’s horrified by a grisly discovery: a vintage wedding dress, the hem lined with a baby’s bones. The case quickly escalates when the dress is connected to top Dublin fashion magnate Lavinia Grant – who has died that very day. The initial evidence suggests natural causes; Cathy suspects otherwise.

The investigation pairs her with O’Rourke, an old friend from the force with whom she has a past. Normally Cathy would welcome his support – but she’s nursing a secret of her own, which becomes all the more difficult under his watchful gaze. However, she can’t afford to become distracted. An infamous Las Vegas gangster has arrived in the city, leaving two bodies – and a buzzing FBI investigation – in his wake.

This cold case is about to become very hot indeed . . .

‘Instantly gripping, perfectly paced, and filled with a brilliant cast of characters, led by the utterly likeable and relatable Detective Cathy Connolly . . . from the murky depths of these buried secrets comes an ending that truly shines.’ – Alex Barclay
