Author profile: Valerie Keogh

As a registered nurse, Irish author Valerie Keogh also wanted to have a nurse as a central character - a serial killer in her crime thriller called Deadly Sleep (2014).

Nicola Connolly is a nurse. She is also a serial killer. She kills neatly, three victims every six months, moving around the UK. But then she moves to Bath, where the police are hunting a serial killer who kills and tortures his victims. 
That One May Smile (2014) is Keogh's first novel in her "Garda West" series.
When Kelly Johnson's husband disappears, her perfect world in Foxrock on Dublin's southside falls apart. Then she stumbles on a dead body in the graveyard behind her house. Then Detective Sergeant Mike West finds a link between the dead body and Kelly's missing husband - but Kelly disappears. 
The sequel, Close Ranks (2014), features the same DS West and Kelly Johnson characters.

Keogh is from Ireland and based in the UK. Her other eBooks include Exit Five from Charing Cross (2014).
