He'll do anything to protect his secrets. She'll stop at nothing to expose the truth.

It only takes one person to break the silence.

When solicitor Finn Fitzpatrick is approached by a man to investigate the death of his daughter, her first instinct is to refuse.

The father is grieving, and unable to accept that his daughter committed suicide. And yet something about the man's story chimes with Finn.

Why did a bright, confident, beautiful young girl suddenly drop out of school? Could the answer lie in her relationship with Ireland's most famous film director?

The deeper Finn goes into the case, the more dark, twisted and dangerous the picture becomes.

Because these are powerful people she is trying to expose. And they're willing to do anything to keep the truth hidden.

Reviews for Darkest Truth

A strong, authentic and thoroughly likeable solicitor-protagonist, vivid setting and gripping storyline make for a terrific debut. I look forward to more from Catherine Kirwan! * Andrea Carter author of the Inishowen Mysteries (soon to be made into a TV series) * A fast-paced and twisty thriller, with a gutsy protagonist you can't help but root for. It left me breathless. * Claire Askew, author of All The Hidden Truths * A clever twist on the genre, asking us to look at male privilege and the reasons why these men have been able to get away with their crimes for so long...A very timely novel. * Araminta Hall, author of Our Kind of Cruelty * Darkest Truth has an unforgettable heroine, a well plotted story and very moving honesty at its heart. Timely and highly evocative of its setting, it's a strikingly good debut. I can't wait to read more from Catherine Kirwan. * Jane Casey, author of the Maeve Kerrigan series * Darkest Truth tackles difficult issues with empathy and intelligence and still manages to be a gripping, twisting novel of mounting suspense. It couldn't be more relevant and the time to read this is right now. * Amy Lloyd, author of The Innocent Wife *
