Description

The Mystery of Mercy Close is the tale of strong and sassy but vulnerable, private detective Helen Walsh who is looking for a missing person - but can she find him before she loses herself? 'I have a habit of taking instant dislikes to people. Simply because it saves time . . .' Wasp-tongued private investigator Helen Walsh doesn't believe in love, fear, depression or hot drinks. But when a missing persons case takes her into the dark, glamorous world of her dodgy ex, Jay Parker, she is drawn away from Artie Devlin, her distinctly unglamorous detective boyfriend.Caught between smart, stable Artie and chaotic, up-for-anything Jay - two different, but equally enticing men - and plagued by her own black doubts, Helen finds she's beginning to believe in something.But is it fear, or is it love?'A brilliant, unusual, brave, sexy, book . . . will confirm Keyes's place as one of our finest writers' Jojo Moyes 'Gut-bustingly funny' Independent on Sunday'When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own' Daily Express'Zips along with engaging characters, fabulous plotting and spot-on dialogue. Marian Keyes: what a genius' Daily Mail

Our customer reviews

I love Marian Keyes books but this one was just average. Out of all of the sisters I thought Helen would be the most interesting but I really preferred Rachel's Holiday or Watermelon to this one. But if you are reading all of the stories of the sisters you can't miss this one.show more
