Death on the Hill Summary

Death on the Hill: The Killing of Celine Cawley by Abigail Rieley

The case that had everything: lies, betrayal, sex. The story that fascinated the nation.

On 15 December 2008, two screams shattered the peace of the affluent Windgate Road in Howth, Co Dublin. Celine Cawley, founder of the hugely successful Toytown Films, former model and `Bond girl', lay dying on the patio of her home. A major garda search got underway for the balaclava-wearing burglar that Celine's husband, Eamonn Lillis, had described so vividly as his wife's attacker. But it quickly became clear that there was no burglar, and the finger of suspicion pointed squarely at Lillis himself.

Journalist Abigail Rieley, who covered the trial for the Irish Independent, gives a step-by-step account of the day of the killing, the garda investigations, explores the relationship between Lillis and Cawley and between Lillis and his mistress, and gives a day-by-day account of the sensational trial and its impact on the families.
