*A New York Times Pick of the Best Thrillers of 2021

*A Washington Post Pick of the 10 Best Thrillers for 2021

''Bloody good.'' --The New York Times

''Timely, surprising, emotionally alive, this is about as good as suspense fiction gets.'' --Washington Post

No one even knew they were together. Now one of them is dead.


Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin and start dating the same week COVID-19 reaches Irish shores.


When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests they move in together. Ciara sees a unique opportunity for a relationship to flourish without the scrutiny of family and friends. Oliver sees a chance to hide who -- and what -- he really is.


Detectives arrive at Oliver's apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.

Can they determine what really happened, or has the lockdown created an opportunity for someone to commit the perfect crime?
