Too Close for Comfort

UK Publisher: Transworld Publishers Ltd.

The Vanishing Triangle

A woman’s body is found in Ireland’s most notorious body-dump zone, an area in the Dublin mountains where a number of women disappeared in the past.

Nun’s Cross

The victim is from an exclusive gated development in the suburbs – where the prime suspect in the vanishing triangle cases, Derek Carpenter, now lives. It looks as if the past is coming back to haunt the present.

But DI Jo Birmingham doesn’t believe the case is open and shut. Her husband Dan was part of the original investigation team; is she trying to protect her own fragile domestic peace?

The one person who could help her crack the case, Derek’s wife Liz, is so desperate to protect her family that she is going out of her way to thwart all efforts to establish the truth.

Can both women emerge unscathed?




“Besides being a prolific author of true crime books, O’Connor is the Sunday World newspaper’s Crime Correspondent, so Too Close For Comfort is packed with authentic detail of police procedure and criminal behaviour………O’Connor has also peppered her tale with a satisfying number of red herrings and terrific plot twists as her tale gathers pace.” Myles McWeeney, The Irish Independant, 09.06.12
