The protagonist, Lindsey Ryan, a former elite soldier is spurred into protective mode when Lena, a raped and badly beaten Syrian woman, literally falls into her life.

Praise for While Nobody is Watching, the first Lindsey Ryan book:
Page-turning thriller debut from someone who knows the world's trouble spots up close. Michelle Dunne is the real deal. Cathy Kelly

Set against a backdrop of Cork’s less salubrious back streets, and populated by a colourful cast of addicts, prostitutes, young offenders and former soldiers, While Nobody is Watching is a fast-paced thriller with a flawed but dynamic heroine at its heart… Ryan herself is a gripping character as she battles her invisible enemies, the most vicious of which is the guilt which makes her life a living hell. The Irish Times

Dunne’s portrayal of Lindsey’s efforts to keep PTSD at bay, which include both positive and incredibly self-destructive actions to get her out of her own head, is masterful, combining sensitive characterization and great plotting. Booklist

Disturbing and at times, heart-breaking While Nobody is Watching is also a very thought-provoking and poignant read, one I highly recommend. All the individual players in this tale are all wonderfully cast and Michelle Dunne excels at imparting the compassionate nature of humanity. Mairéad Hearne – Swirl and thread book blog

A really well written, thought provoking story that will stay with me for a long time. Cheekypee Book Reviews
