    Description

    Two sisters climbing the ranks of Dublin’s criminal justice system. A murder case that could change their lives forever. The Sisters is a gripping new thriller from one of the most exciting voices in crime fiction.

    In this prequel to the international best seller The Ruin, set 10 years prior, bright-eyed Carrie Ryan is at the very start of her career. When she has a hunch about an ongoing murder investigation, she knows it could be her only chance to prove herself and truly break into the “boys' club” of Dublin’s police force. 

     Carrie uncovers this make-or-break moment in a case file that her sister Aifric, a newly qualified barrister, leaves on their kitchen counter: Robert Collins has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend after a fight in a local pub. All signs point toward a guilty verdict, but both sisters quickly begin to find evidence that complicates the story. All the while, Carrie is very aware that she’s crossed the line—if the detective sergeant running the investigation finds out she’s been messing around with his case, her career will be over before it has begun. Aoife McMahon lends her authentic accent and her knowledge of the series’ characters, delivering a powerful performance that heightens the drama with every twist and turn. 

    Please note: This audio contains strong language, distressing situations, and descriptions of violence that some listeners may find upsetting. Discretion is advised.

    Didn't care for how it ended

    It was short and missing some action. We started with one character telling her story and her story was never finished. Instead we switch to a 2nd character whom I thought was building and potentially interesting story but gave us an anticlimactic and abrupt finish.

    Fantastic Start To A Series

    I had been looking at Dervla McTiernan books for a while so was thrilled to find this prequal and I have to say I found it a very good listen that would make me try the next in the series. It was a great plot, well read and skilfully crafted - the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that at just over 3 hours it was more of a taster than a full thriller so I look forward to getting to know the sisters better in the next book

    Aoife McMahon was outstanding with the delivery of the story

    OK narration, abrupt ending

    As others have said, the narrator did not portray male voices very well. I also found myself checking to see if I missed any chapters somehow once the story ended since it was so abrupt. I was expecting a better resolution with the 2 sisters working together instead of staying so separate from each other.

    Look forward to hearing more from this author

    Truth is- I am old and although a former English teacher and librarian, I don’t listen to the fine/uplifting literature others read/listen to. I like suspense and mysteries. This is the FIRST monthly freebie from Audible I have liked. It’s a good story (although, like any short story, it ties things up way too simply. Afric’s story isn’t complete. But the reader was great and I’d listen to more by the author or the reader.

    Glaring inaccuracies

    I thought this was extremely well-written, and very engaging, but do not understand how a book set in 2004 could be casually referencing Fifty Shades of Grey, or have characters binge watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy whilst texting each other casually. In 2004. How did this get past an editor? And make it all the way to audible?

    Disjointed with an abrupt ending

    This was ultimately disappointing. The ending seemed to come out of nowhere. However Aoife McMahon's narration was superb.

    Too Short

    Just as you get into this one it ends! Love it otherwise and would recommend.

    Very good story and I look forward to reading more

    I love the choice of an Irish narrator for an Irish writer's story set in Ireland. it lent an air of authenticity when listening. I'm very interested in reading more about these two great characters and hopes the author returns to both of them in the future.

    Also, I'm no SJW but did *not* find the male characterizations so over the top as some did. cops everywhere tend to be an old boys club group. But even in that regards there were two, possibly three, male characters (not counting the defendant) who were not antagonizing or patronizing, but legitimate allies to the sisters.

    it was lacking

    it wasnt bad but it seemed more like a skim of a story than an actual story. the characters weren't developed enough and the story like was good but it was too fast.

    Missing something

    The story pulled me in rather quickly, but in the end, it felt like they tried to wrap it up too soon. It begins getting you invested in Afric’s story, then switches to Carrie and pretty much leaves you hanging on Afric.

    Would have been better with one more chapter

    Also, I wish the author could have found some more creative interjections than using “god” and “Jesus” over and over. Many find this offensive.
