Publisher's Summary

On a clear autumn morning in 2004, Rachel O'Reilly, a 30-year-old mother of two, was brutally battered to death in her home. It was a merciless killing that stunned the small, trusting community where she lived, and devastated her close-knit family.
In the days that followed the discovery of her body, it was thought that Rachel was the victim of a bungled robbery attempt. It soon emerged, however, that police investigating the case believed Rachel had known her killer and that her murder had been carefully planned months in advance. The spotlight immediately fell upon Rachel's husband, Joe O'Reilly, who admitted in a number of extraordinary press interviews that he was a prime suspect in his wife's slaying. The 32-year-old advertising executive vehemently denied any involvement. It was a crime that captured the imagination of the public, who watched as the illusion of the idyllic suburban life the couple shared together began to shatter.

Accent is ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING

I'm Irish and know this story well. Great story but ruined when the narrator insisted on putting on an Irish accent. She would have been better off just keeping to her own accent. It made me cringe....

This story could have been told in a paragraph.

A story with a known ending should be compelling; filled with details the headlines may have missed. This was dull.

Scottish accent made me choke on my tea..

This is a straightforward chronological account and as such is fine, fairly interesting. Narrator's perfectly ok / reads well until she feels the need to lapse into thick Celtic brogues. Her Scottish accent beggars belief - spectacular!
