Winter brings more than fierce Atlantic storms to the tourist town of Kylebeggan, County Kerry. On a cold January night a woman is found murdered and laid out in her wedding dress. The town is shocked, but there's more to come. February brings a second murder. And when taxi driver Ellie Gillespie collects a bride-to-be from a hen party - and later discovers the woman has been killed in a similar way to the other women - Ellie decides to get involved.


The gardai, mayor, and tourist board are desperate to minimise the negative publicity. But with the Special Crime Squad drafted in from Dublin and international media in town, it's becoming harder and harder to manage the story.


Ellie has her suspicions about a possible killer. She shares her thoughts with local journalist Cormac Scully, prompting him to dig into past secrets of the town. Can Ellie and Cormac figure out who it is before the Bride Collector strikes again?

About the Author

Siobhán MacDonald was born in Cork in the Republic of Ireland. She studied engineering at University College Galway and pursued a successful career writing for the technology sector in Scotland for ten years, then in France before returning to Ireland.

Growing up in a large Irish family, there was a premium attached to being able to tell a good story. Siobhán's mother taught speech and drama and was a proficient storyteller herself, a talent she encouraged in all her children.

After many years writing short stories and articles, Siobhán published her first novel Twister River in 2016. Siobhán followed this up with her second novel, The Blue Pool. Twisted River won an Earphone AudioFile award in 2016 and The Blue Pool has been a top #10 bestseller in the Australian Kindle chart. Guilty is her first novel for Constable, Little, Brown.

Siobhán lives in Limerick, Ireland with her husband and two sons.
