Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

WOW... This is a debut book by Olivia Kiernan. DCS Frankie Sheehan has a lot going on. She is working on solving a string of crimes while also dealing with a crime that happen against her. There is no doubt the crime against her left her with many issues to deal with but working is helping her get on with her life. I like that a Frankie didn't let her issues keep her out of living life. I actually think that because of what happen it helps her keep prospective of the crimes, sees things other have or could have missed, and work harder to solve a crime that others have written off as unsolvable. I was enthralled from the beginning and by the halfway point of the story I thought I had the case solved. Yea, well I wasn't even close. I love being wrong while reading. The hints led me one way while I should have gone the other way. While there were some hints that I knew were taking me the wrong direction since what fun would it be to give it all away at the beginning of the story I couldn't help but follow them. I am a synopsis and cover person. For me to want to read a book the cover has to grab my attention. The cover of Too Close to Breathe did just that. I look at the cover and saw a mystery, a thriller, and a dark story that I couldn't wait to pick up. Then when I read the synopsis and Olivia Kiernan was compared to such amazing authors as Tana French and Gillian Flynn I knew that I would not be able to pass on this book.

About the Author:

 

 When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

 

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

"Zu nah": Überraschender Thriller mit kleinen Schwächen
Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

Nichts ist wie es scheint: Sowohl die Opfer als auch die Verdächtigen in einem Serienmordfall in Dublin verbergen dunkle Geheimnisse. Deswegen erwarten Detective Frankie Sheehan immer wieder Rückschläge, Verwirrungen und Überraschungen bei ihren Ermittlungen. „Zu nah“ von Olivia Kiernan ist ein wirklich guter, wenn auch kein außergewöhnlich guter Thriller.

 

Die spannende Handlung bietet einige unerwartete Wendungen (inklusive einer ziemlich abrupten Auflösung) und teils komplexe Charaktere. Vor allem Frankie ist tough und kompetent, aber aufgrund einer schrecklichen Erfahrung in ihrer Karriere gleichzeitig traumatisiert. Mir hat die dichte Erzählweise gefallen, jedoch hätte ich mir teilweise ein höheres Erzähltempo gewünscht. Manchmal verliert sich die Handlung in bürokratischen Details. Die Polizisten diskutieren beispielsweise ständig die Finanzierung ihrer Arbeit, aber am Ende führen sie alle benötigten Tests und Aufgaben trotz des Jammerns um das knappe Budget trotzdem durch. Das fand ich etwas irritierend. Abgesehen davon fesselt das Buch meistens und ließ sich leicht lesen.

Too Close to Breathe
Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

Too Close to Breathe is dark, gritty, and at times, deeply disturbing. The story takes us on a chilling journey through the world of BDSM, abuse, self-harm, and the dark web. The hunt for the killer did draw me in and kept me reading to see how it would all play out, but the drawback for me was a lack of connection with Frankie. She's just returning to work and still dealing with an attack during a previous case. We do get bits of pieces of that case throughout the book, so I can understand and empathize with her, but for whatever reason, there was that lack of connection that kept me from getting fully immersed in the story. The author does have talent and I'll be interested to see her growth as the series progresses.

Advanced Book Review: Too Close to Breathe
Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

Summary: In a quiet Dublin suburb, within her pristine home, Eleanor Costello is found hanging from a rope.

Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan would be more than happy to declare it a suicide. Four months ago, Frankie's pursuit of a killer almost ended her life and she isn't keen on investigating another homicide. But the autopsy reveals poorly healed bones and old stab wounds, absent from medical records. A new cut is carefully, deliberately covered in paint. Eleanor's husband, Peter, is unreachable, missing. A search of the couple's home reveals only two signs of personality: a much-loved book on art and a laptop with access to the Dark Web.

With the suspect pool growing, the carefully crafted profile of the victim crumbling with each new lead, and mysterious calls to Frankie's phone implying that the killer is closer than anyone would like, all Frankie knows is that Eleanor guarded her secrets as closely in life as she does in death.

As the investigation grows more challenging, Frankie can't help but feel that something doesn't fit. And when another woman is found murdered, the same paint on her corpse, Frankie knows that unraveling Eleanor's life is the only way to find the murderer before he claims another victim . . . or finishes the fate Frankie only just managed to escape.

Engrossing, complex, and atmospheric, Olivia Kiernan's debut novel will leave readers breathless.
