Product description

Review

"A quite exceptional novel . . . The world he creates has echoes of Kafka and Orwell . . . totally convincing. It draws you in like a trap." (C. J. SANSOM, author of Dissolution and Winter in Madrid)

"Unputdownable . . . chillingly portrayed . . . a highly sophisticated first novel." (CHARLES PALLISER, author of The Quincunx)

"Compelling and eerily authentic . . . Read it and be grateful to be alive in our day and age." (ROBERT GODDARD)

"A dark, original story wrapped in a wonderful gothic gloom . . . it's a tough act to pull off, but Andrew Hughes manages it with brio. I heard echoes of James Hogg and Robert Louis Stevenson." (ANDREW TAYLOR, author of The American Boy and The Scent of Death)

"Reminiscent of John Banville's The Book of Evidence . . . a bracing, lurid tale that is as engrossing as it is chilling." (Declan Burke IRISH INDEPENDENT)

"A vivid piece of writing . . . brings to mind Andrew Miller’s Costa-winning novel, Pure." (IRISH TIMES)

"Extraordinarily detailed world, impeccably researched . . . so superbly written that it soars as a masterly work of fiction . . . utterly compelling." (Dermot Bolger IRISH MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Book Description

Set in Dublin in the 1840s and based on the true story of the murder of a child, this dazzling literary debut - at once a historical novel and crime thriller - will appeal to fans of Andrew Taylor, Andrew Miller and Peter Ackroyd.
