'Excellently written and at times, heartcatchingly sad' MARIAN KEYES

*****
THE SECRETS OF THE PAST WILL EXPOSE THE CRIMES OF THE PRESENT . . .

On his first week on the job, Garda Cormac Reilly responds to a call at a decrepit country house to find two silent, neglected children waiting for him - fifteen-year-old Maude and five-year-old Jack. Their mother lies dead upstairs.

Twenty years later, Cormac has left his high-flying career as a detective in Dublin and returned to Galway. As he struggles to navigate the politics of a new police station, Maude and Jack return to haunt him.

What ties a recent suicide to the woman's death so long ago? And who among his new colleagues can Cormac really trust?

*****

This unsettling crime debut draws us deep into the dark heart of Ireland and asks who will protect you when the authorities can't - or won't. Perfect for fans of Tana French, Jane Casey, Liz Nugent, Susie Steiner and Caz Frear.

How I Lose You
What happens to a story when it ends too soon?

When Eva and Adam fall into bed one Friday night, tired and happy after drinks with friends, they have their whole lives ahead of them. But then their story ends.
How I Lose You is a love story told backwards – the story of Eva and Adam, which is warmer and funnier and more beautiful because we know it is going to be interrupted.

It’s a story Eva thought she knew – but as she will discover, it’s not just the ending of the story that she got wrong.
