    Maud Drennan is a dedicated caretaker, but her sunny, capable disposition and snappy quips mask a deep sadness. A tragic childhood event left her in the company of a cast of patron saints who pop in and out of her life like unwelcome tourists. She tries to find solace in her hard work in London...but then she meets the inimitable Mr. Flood. A menace by all accounts, Cathal Flood is a widower living alone in a Gothic Dorset mansion crawling with collector's items and feral cats.

    Maud Drennan - underpaid carer and unintentional psychic - is the latest in a long line of dogsbodies for the ancient, belligerent Cathal Flood. Yet despite her best efforts, Maud is drawn into the mysteries concealed in his filthy, once-grand home. She realises that Cathal, and the junk-filled rooms, are opening up to her. With only her landlady and a troop of sarcastic ghostly saints to help, Maud must uncover what lies beneath Cathal's decades-old hostility and the strange activities of the house itself.

    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.

    Der charmante Gelegenheitsdieb und Hippie Mahony glaubte immer, seine Mutter habe ihn aus Desinteresse 1950 in einem Waisenhaus in Dublin abgegeben. Sechsundzwanzig Jahre später erhält er einen Brief, der ein ganz anderes, ein brutales Licht auf die Geschichte seiner Mutter wirft. Mahony reist daraufhin in seinen Geburtsort, um herauszufinden, was damals wirklich geschah. Sein geradezu unheimlich vertrautes Gesicht beunruhigt die Bewohner von Anfang an.
