Publisher's Summary

When Mahony returns to Mulderrig, a speck of a place on Ireland's west coast, he brings only his handsome face, a photograph of his long-lost mother and a determination to do battle with the village's lies.

Mahony also somehow wakes the dead from their graves, with their foggy memories and hidden stories floating greyly amongst the unseeing living. No one, though - living or dead - will be able to guess what happened to the teenage mother who abandoned him as a baby.

What the Critics Say

"It’s utterly original and deeply enjoyable. It smacks you in the face from the first page and for the rest of the novel strokes your cheek." (Canongate)

    "Brilliant narration of a great story."

    This is a classic 'Who Dunnit?' that is written incredibly well. Full of belly laughs as well.

    The narration is probably the best that I've heard on Audible.

    Well worth your time!

    "Quite Simply fantastic!"

    This book was superb! from start to finish the author and narrator have you hooked. There are actual laugh out loud moments that defuse moments of high tension or sadness.

    "Mesmerising"

    Compelling story narrated with warmth and humour. The magic and fantasy are subsumed in the overwhelming reality of the protagonist's journey. Will listen to this again and again.
