THE AUTHOR

Born in Dublin, Louise Phillips, returned to writing in 2006. Since then she has been published as part of many anthologies, including County Lines from New Island, and various literary journals. Louise won the Jonathan Swift Award for her short story 'Last Kiss', and was a winner in the Irish Writers’ Centre Lonely Voice Platform, short-listed for the Molly Keane Memorial Award, Bridport UK, and long-listed twice for RTE Guide/Penguin short story competition. In 2012, she was awarded an arts bursary for literature from South County Dublin Arts
Council. Launching this new voice in crime, Ciara Doorley, Editorial Director of Hachette Books Ireland, says of Louise. ‘With overtones of Sophie Hannah and Tana French, Louise is a supremely talented writer. She subconsciously creates parallels between her characters, and this really challenges the reader. Her writing is tense, atmospheric and we’re really excited to be launching a new voice in Irish crime.’
