REVIEW ~ Who Took Eden Mulligan? by Sharon Dempsey

"They're dead. They're all dead. It's my fault. I killed them."

Iona Gardener stands bloodied and staring as she confesses to the murder of four people in a run-down cottage outside of Belfast. 

Inside the cottage, the words "Who Took Eden Mulligan?" are graffitied on the wall, connecting the murder scene with the famous cold case of a motjer-,of-,five who went missing during The Troubles.

But this case is different. Right from the start.

Because no one in the community is willing to tell the truth, and the only thing DI Danny Stowe and forensic psychologist Rose Lainey can be certain of is that Iona's confession I'd false.....

Well, where do I start with this review!? I didn't just like it, I absolutely LOVED IT. It was absolutely brilliant and I CAN'T recommend it enough, it had me gripped from the first few pages right through to the end, there were some great twists and turns too which I definitely wasn't expecting especially towards the end. I loved how it was set in Northern Ireland and with having family there, I knew a few of the places that were named in the book so I could visualise myself been there at times and I also loved Rose Lainey's character, I felt she was a very strong female lead whom had to deal.with her own past but who took no nonsense either. I even had to slow down reading it as I didn't want it to end, the story flowed really well and at a fast pace too and there were parts in the book I could feel my heart rate raising a little so it's definitely not for the fainthearted. This is the first book that I've read by Sharon and I am really looking forward to reading more of Sharon's books and coincidentally I'm currently waiting on The Midnight Killing from my local library and I hope it won't be too long before until it comes in so I can get to read it.

Who Took Eden Mulligan? is published and available on Kindle, Audiobooks and is available from all good bookstores and libraries.
