Belfast, Northern Ireland: A man left horrifically maimed by a car accident appears to have taken his own life. It should be an open-and-shut case, but something doesn't feel right to DCI Serena Flanagan. Flanagan ignores advice to close the case, call it a suicide, and be done with it. As she picks at the threads of the dead man's life, a disturbing picture emerges, and she realizes the man's widow, Roberta Garrick, is not what she seems . . .

Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* By all accounts, Henry Garrick took his own life. The wealthy car dealer had been maimed in an accident nearly six months earlier and faced a long, painful recovery. But despite agreement between medical examiner and coroner on the suicide ruling, something doesn't feel right to Belfast DCI Serena Flanagan. Garrick had a strong faith and an optimistic outlook, and Flanagan is bothered that the family photographs gathered at his bedside were turned away from him, so she focuses on Garrick's widow, Roberta, and the Reverend Peter McKay, who's comforting her. Readers soon learn how Garrick died, as Flanagan begins to turn up disquieting information about his widow. As the Garrick case takes most of her waking hours, Flanagan's home life is reaching a breaking point: her husband still suffers debilitating nightmares about their home invasion a year earlier, her children are coming to regard her as a stranger, and she is torn between work and family. The city of Belfast has been a significant presence in Neville's mysteries, but this compelling procedural is a more universal tale in which unchecked evil flourishes. Flanagan, a breast-cancer survivor undergoing counseling, is a fallible protagonist whose appeal grows with each book; don't miss her here.--Leber, Michele Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Edgar-finalist Neville's excellent sequel to 2015's Those We Left Behind, Det. Chief Insp. Serena Flanagan of the Belfast police investigates the apparent suicide of Henry Garrick, who was bedridden while slowly and painfully recovering from a serious car accident. It seems that his wife, Roberta, and a family friend, Rev. Peter McKay, gave him his evening medication of a packet of morphine granules mixed into a tub of yogurt, but after they left, he added an additional 10 packets and died during the night. But Roberta and McKay share a dreadful secret that eats at the reverend until he can barely contain it. Flanagan, who's trying to focus on work despite serious family problems, suspects something is not as it seems, but he has no evidence and is constrained to accept the death as a suicide. The case is officially closed, but Flanagan can't help following the remaining loose ends until something approaching justice is done in this complex and compassionate study of the human condition.
