Staff Reviews


A retired Chicago cop escapes his part and moves to rural Ireland where he befriends a lonely child and becomes enmeshed in the disappearance of her brother. Beautiful atmosphere, character development, and pub scenes. A novel with a crime rather than a crime novel.

— Eve

Description


A New York Times Bestseller

"This hushed suspense tale about thwarted dreams of escape may be her best one yet...its own kind of masterpiece." --Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

A "taut, chiseled and propulsive" (Vogue) new novel from the bestselling mystery writer who "is in a class by herself." (The New York Times)


Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.

"One of the greatest crime novelists writing today" (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking what we sacrifice in our search for truth and justice, and what we risk if we don't.
