Six friends are trapped. One of them is dead.
One of them is the killer.
Set on a remote storm-swept island called Inishmore off the Irish coast in the Atlantic Ocean, six friends – all originally from the island, but all gone their separate ways – reunite before New Year's Eve.
But the day before New Year's Eve one of the friends is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. Murdered. As a storm descends and they are cut off from the mainland, Cara – who is also the only serving member of the Irish police force on the island – has no choice but to investigate the death of her own friend herself before the storm lifts and the killer can escape from the island.
It isn't just a novel about a murder, and a group of close, lifelong friends infested with secrets and lies, rotting them from the inside out. It's a novel about being an outsider, about loneliness and loss, about tradition and superstition, and how greed and guilt can eat you up.
‘Stunned… Brilliant claustrophobic locked in drama…a wonderful twisty turny plot. An excellent read in a magical mystical setting that I found myself googling constantly.’
