Mystery Woman Sleuth | Suspense
The Gallagher family has called Deeprath Castle home for
seven hundred years. Nestled in the Wicklow Mountains of
Ireland, the estate is now slated to become a public
trust, and book lover and scholar Carragh Ryan is hired
to take inventory of its historic library. But after
meeting Aidan, the current Viscount Gallagher, and his
enigmatic family, Carragh knows that her task will be
more challenging than she’d thought.
Two decades before, Aidan’s parents died violently at
Deeprath. The case, which was never closed, has recently
been taken up by a new detective determined to find the
truth. The couple’s unusual deaths harken back a century,
when twenty-three-year-old Lady Jenny Gallagher also died
at Deeprath under mysterious circumstances, leaving
behind an infant son and her husband, a renowned writer
who never published again. These incidents only fueled
fantastical theories about the Darkling Bride, a local
legend of a sultry and dangerous woman from long ago
whose wrath continues to haunt the castle.
The past catches up to the present, and odd clues in the
house soon have Carragh wondering if there are unseen
forces stalking the Gallagher family. As secrets emerge
from the shadows and Carragh gets closer to answers—and
to Aidan—could she be the Darkling Bride’s next victim?
