Publisher's Summary

The third novel in the Quirke mysteries, now a major TV series starring Gabriel Byrne.

1950's Ireland. As a deep, bewildering fog cloaks Dublin, a young woman is found to have vanished. When Phoebe Griffin, still haunted by the horrors of her past, is unable to discover news of her friend; Quirke, fresh from drying out in an institution, responds to his daughter's request for help.

But as Phoebe, Quirke and Inspector Hackett speak with those who knew April, they begin to realise that there may have been more behind the young woman's discretion and secrecy than they could have imagined. And while Quirke finds himself distracted from his sobriety by a beautiful young actress, Phoebe watches helplessly as April's family hush up her disappearance, terrified of a scandal; and all possible leads seem to dry up, bar one she cannot bear to contemplate....

When Quirke eventually makes a disturbing discovery, he is finally able to begin unravelling the great, complex web of love, lies, jealousy and dark secrets that April spun her life from.

Annoying narrator

Story was a bit drawn out and I skipped several chapters and still didn't miss anything of importance. I found the narrator tried SO hard that it was completely off-putting. He made every sentence sound as though it was a major mystery...interesting how sometimes Less is More
