Description

FIVE WENT INTO THE WOODS. TWO NEVER CAME BACK.

‘This book reminds me of the first time I read Mystic River by Dennis Lehane. It’s THAT good.’ STEVE CAVANAGH

‘An incredible thriller that kept me up reading. Intense. Wickedly smart. A stunning debut from a gifted author’ ADRIAN McKINTY, bestselling author of The Chain

Erin Sloane was sixteen when high school senior Andre Villiers was murdered by his friends. They were her friends, too, led by the intense, charismatic Ricky Hell. Five people went into West Cypress Woods the night Andre was murdered. Only three came out.

Ativan, alcohol and distance had dimmed Erin’s memories of that time. But nearly twenty years later, an ageing father will bring her home. Now a journalist, she is asked to write a story about the Southport Three and the thrill-kill murder that electrified the country. Erin’s investigation propels her closer and closer to a terrifying truth. And closer and closer to danger.

An unforgettable story of murder, trauma and childhoods lost, I Shot the Devil is a taut, prize-winning debut novel from an electrifying new talent.

This is a stunner of a debut thriller’ THE IRISH INDEPENDENT

‘One of the freshest debuts to come along in a long time. A tense, irresistible thriller shot through with moments of unnerving darkness. A clever, compelling read.’ DERVLA MCTIERNAN, #1 bestselling author of The Ruin, The Scholar and The Good Turn

‘I Shot The Devil is a dark, twisting thriller that gets deep under your skin.’ MARK BRANDI

‘A powder-keg with a slow burning fuse . . . perfectly balanced and terrifically twisting, I Shot the Devil is for fans of Alex Marwood, Paula Hawkins and Gillian Flynn’ BOOKS+PUBLISHING
