Publisher Description

A bizarre road accident in Ireland propels Inspector Celcius Daly into an investigation that could reveal the truth about his mother’s death thirty years ago.

Father Aloysius Walsh spent the last years of his life painstakingly collecting evidence of a year-long killing spree, unparalleled savagery that blighted Ireland’s borderlands at the end of the 1970s. Pinned to his bedroom wall, a macabre map charts the grim territory of death—victims, weapons, wounds, dates—and somehow, amid the forest of pins and notes, he had discerned a pattern.

So why did Father Walsh deliberately drive through a cordon of policemen and off the road to his death? Why, when Inspector Celcius Daly arrives at the scene, does he find Special Branch already there? And why is Daly’s mother’s name on the priest’s map?

  • “A tough yet lyrical novel, evoking that desperate period of Irish history.”

    - Sunday Times (London)
  • “Beautifully written…much more than a routine whodunnit.”

    - Irish Independent
  • “Unquestionably one of the crime novels of the year, written in peerless prose, with a delicate plot.”

    - Daily Mail (London)
  • “The truth gradually comes clear in this beautifully written novel. It reveals a frightening fact: the Troubles aren’t over yet.”

    - Literary Review (London)
  • “Quinn’s masterly third mystery featuring Insp. Celcius Daly successfully integrates the bloody history of Northern Ireland with a suspenseful plot…Understated but effective prose enhances a crackerjack story line.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Caroline Lennon delivers a lyrical, sensitive performance of Inspector Celcius Daly’s third outing…Lennon takes a contemplative tone with Daly’s introspective musings, especially as he becomes more deeply embroiled in the priest’s mystery and looks into his childhood and his mother’s murder. Lennon keeps the tension high as Daly searches the priest’s study, finds a map of killings and dates, and stumbles into a nest of spies with murder on their minds.”
