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 mesmerising tale of secrets and lies rising from the past to strangle the present. -- Val McDermid on The Rosary Garden
