If only someone had listened…
When the supposed suicide of famous Scottish football coach Harry Nugent hits the headlines, the tabloids are filled with tributes to a charitable pillar of the community that gave so much back to sport and to those less fortunate.
But something isn’t right. Normally celebrities are queuing up to claim to have had a very special relationship with the deceased, but investigative journalist Oonagh O’Neil is getting the distinct impression that people are trying to distance themselves from Harry.
Oonagh’s investigation leads her to uncover a heartbreakingly haunting cover-up that chills her to the core… and places her in mortal danger from those willing to protect their sadistic and dark secrets at any cost…
Perfect for fans of Patricia Gibney, Angela Marsons and Cara Hunter.

Book 2 – Keep Her Silent
Book 3 – The Quiet Ones
A Superb Crime Thriller!
I’ve been lucky enough to follow this series from the very beginning, and the third book is every bit as riveting as I thought it would be!
Oonagh O’Neil is no-one’s fool; a journalist of some repute with years of experience behind her, she definitely has a nose for a story. So when three supposedly unconnected bodies are found in a short space of time with similarities in the murder method, Oonagh’s antennae is twitching. There’s something not quite right and the police don’t seem to be making any connections – can she find out what it’s all about?
Another spectacular offering from Theresa Talbot, with enough secrets, twists and turns to keep the readers’ attention gripped all the way through – I loved this one! Very cleverly created, incorporating plenty of side issues and events and laced with humour all the way through whilst never losing focus of the main story. Glasgow is my closest city, and I enjoy picturing all the locations described in the novel. Oonagh is no shrinking violet – she wouldn’t be able to do her job if she was – but showing her vulnerable side is a masterstroke and makes her more human to the rest of us feartie’s out here! A superb third novel, and another which fully earns the full five stars I’m very happy to attach to my review. A stunning read, and highly recommended to lovers of great crime fiction.
