‘A gripping mystery lies at the heart of this atmospheric and wonderfully written police procedural’ Brian McGilloway

A fatal fire in a holiday let on Slievemore, Achill Island, leaves one person dead and another missing. Deemed arson, DS Lucy Golden and her team are tasked with solving the murder and locating the missing woman, Moira Delaney. As the case develops, the pressure builds when it transpires that Moira’s father is a gangland figure, a suspect in three unsolved murders. If Lucy doesn’t uncover what happened that morning in Slievemore, he will deploy his men to deal out his own sort of justice.

Things get even more complicated when a laptop is uncovered that could ruin all that Lucy holds dear. And as the net on the suspect tightens, Lucy faces a hard choice – will she use it to save herself and bring a murderer to justice, or bury it and save her family and her career?

‘With the raw and savagely beautiful Achill Island as a fitting backdrop, a tense and gut-wrenching plotline, and a cast of expertly drawn characters, Murphy delivers up a gritty and emotional reading experience’ Zoe Miller

Reviews

A gripping mystery lies at the heart of this atmospheric and wonderfully written police procedural
Brian McGilloway, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE EMPTY ROOM
With the raw and savagely beautiful Achill Island as a fitting backdrop, a tense and gut-wrenching plotline, and a cast of expertly drawn characters, Murphy delivers up a gritty and emotional reading experience. Her unique style and deft touch blends moments that sent chills down my spine followed with wonderful character depictions that are thoroughly authentic, often witty, and highly entertaining. DS Lucy Golden, with her flawed relationships and often spiky demeanour, is portrayed with empathy and heart, and I love the way Murphy is developing her over the series
