American pathologist Nora Gavin has come to the Irish midlands to examine a body unearthed at a desolate spot known as the Lake of Sorrows. As with all the artifacts culled from its prehistoric depths, the bog has effectively preserved the dead man’s remains—his multiple wounds suggest he was the victim of an ancient pagan sacrifice known as “triple death.” But signs of a more recent slaying emerge when a second body, bearing a similar wound pattern, is found—this one sporting a wristwatch.

Someone has come to this quagmire to sink their dreadful handiwork—and Nora soon realizes that she is being pulled deeper into the land and all it holds: the secrets to a cache of missing gold, a tumultuous love affair with archaeologist Cormac Maguire, and the dark mysteries and desires of the workers at the site. As they draw closer to the truth, Nora and Cormac must exercise the utmost caution to avoid becoming the next victims of a ruthless killer fixated on the gruesome notion of triple death.

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Personal detail and local history give Lake of Sorrows a heft and richness uncommon in contemporary suspense novels.”

    Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • “Hart’s second literary thriller starring pathologist Nora Gavin…is an Irish breakfast of a book: a kidney here, a sausage there, undeniably rich and delicious…Every character is fascinating…Hart’s language sings, and the gothic atmosphere lingers the way peat clings to the skin of bog workers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Another detail-rich, character-centered mix of local history and tangled human relationships…Full of riches for readers who savor the multidimensionality of literary fiction.”


  • A 2004 Book Sense Pick for Mysteries and Thrillers

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Cassie | 2/16/2014

    " Very good book. It's a sequel to Haunted Ground by the same author and is also an archaeological mystery combining modern and past murders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Barbara | 2/8/2014

    " An engrossing mystery with a fascinating background of Irish folkore and ancient Celtic religion. Great characters. I hope she eventually lets the female lead be a little happier, because I liked her so much by the end of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rachel | 1/30/2014

    " Very slow moving-almost made me give up. It is a good storyline, and does have good plot points. Just be prepared for a lot of exploration of feelings and angst. "
