From the author of The Ruin comes a compulsive new
crime thriller set in the fiercely competitive, cutthroat
world of research and academia, where the brightest minds
will stop at nothing to succeed.
When Dr. Emma Sweeney stumbles across the victim of a
hit-and-run outside Galway University early one morning, she
calls her boyfriend, Detective Cormac Reilly, bringing him
first to the scene of a murder that would otherwise never
have been assigned to him. The dead girl is carrying an ID
that will put this crime at the center of a scandalâ€”her card
identifies her as Carline Darcy, heir apparent to Darcy
Therapeutics, Irelandâ€™s most successful pharmaceutical
company. Darcy Therapeutics has a finger in every pie, from
sponsoring university research facilities to funding
political parties to philanthropyâ€”it has even funded Emmaâ€™s
own ground-breaking research.
As the murder investigation twists in unexpected ways and
Cormacâ€™s running of the case comes under scrutiny from the
department and his colleagues, he is forced to question
himself and the beliefs that he has long held as truths. Who
really is Emma? And who is Carline Darcy?
A gripping and atmospheric follow-up to The Ruin, an
â€śexpertly plotted, complex web of secrets that refuse to
stay hiddenâ€ť (Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh Kingâ€™s
Daughter), The Scholar is perfect for fans of
Tana French and Flynn Berry.
