Product description


Fabulous Dublin-based crime. Dark, atmospheric, well-written. Very much in the vein of Tana French. (Jo Spain, bestselling author of The Confession)

An intriguing, compelling and highly entertaining story. Formidably impressive writing! (Liz Nugent, award-winning author of Unravelling Oliver)

A fabulous closed room mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. This is a gorgeously poetic deep-dive into the pieties and myth-making of Dublin in the early eighties. (Denise Mina, acclaimed author of Conviction)

A terrific new gem of Irish noir, written with a light touch but a firm command of character, mannerisms and speech (Sunday Times)

Sombre, psychologically nuanced and compassionate... as gripping as it is disturbing (Irish Times)

Thrilling... will keep you guessing until the very end (My Weekly)

This creeps up on you until you're hooked (Heat)

An intriguing and haunting story that will appeal to lovers of the Irish police procedural (NB Magazine)

Infused with depth, darkness and acute psychological drama. Her polished prose comes studded with original imagery and her dialogue crackles. We are propelled towards an explosive denouement which, artfully, doubles as a kind of moral reckoning (Herald)

Book Description

The first in a powerful new crime trilogy set in 1980s Dublin, exploring the power of the Catholic Church and the powerlessness of unmarried women
