One dead body, one ace of spades… Is the playing card an oversight—or a trademark?

Detective John O’Sullivan needs to find out if the murder was a one-off, or if the killer plans to work his way through a whole deck of cards. The plot thickens as his team discovers more unsolved murders with the same modus operandi—worldwide.

Amber Reed stumbles into the middle of the investigation when she discovers her teenage daughter is a key-player in the Dublin murder case. Determined to do the right thing, Amber and her daughter help John, even though doing so puts their lives in danger.

Pressed by time and duty, John has to protect them and crack the case before the killer strikes again.


Obsession is a dangerous thing, especially if you’re the target…

Detective Evan Gallagher has exchanged his job as an FBI agent for a position within Ireland’s police force. An Garda Síochána rarely deals with serious crime, and Evan thinks Dublin will be a quiet place to start over—but he learns otherwise.

Psychologist Chelsea Campbell never thought that volunteering as a profiler for the Garda would change her life so drastically—until Detective Gallagher calls her to a murder scene in the middle of the night.

Is this a one-time impulse, or is the killer’s agenda only starting? As hard as Chelsea and Evan struggle to solve the case, neither of them expects a second dead body so soon. Working against the clock, they have to win this cat-and-mouse game before the killer claims the next intended victim—which happens to be one of them.

How far will a devoted cop walk on the line of duty?

Detective Finola “Finn” McGregor enjoys her job at An Garda Síochána, Ireland’s police force. In a country with a low crime rate, Finn’s job is mostly routine — until she joins a team that uncovers a human trafficking ring specializing in kidnapping children and forcing them to beg on the streets.

Finn’s sense of justice and adventure would’ve compelled her to solve the case anyway, but when she meets one of the trafficker’s victims, her resolve strengthens. One look into the little girl’s sad blue eyes, and Finn will risk everything — even her life — to save Maddie.
