From Graham Norton, the BAFTA-award-winning Irish television
host and author of the “sparkling and impish” (Daily Mail)
memoirs The Life and Loves of a He Devil and So Me, comes a
charming debut novel set in an idyllic Irish village where a
bumbling investigator has to sort through decades of gossip
and secrets to solve a mysterious crime.
The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama
but when human remains are discovered on an old farm,
suspected to be that of Tommy Burke—a former lover of two
different inhabitants—the village’s dark past begins to
unravel. As the frustrated sergeant PJ Collins struggles to
solve a genuine case for the first time in his life, he
unearths a community’s worth of anger and resentments,
secrets and regret.
In this darkly comic, touching, and at times heartbreaking
novel, perfect for fans of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual
Vacancy, Graham Norton employs his acerbic wit to breathe
life into a host of love-able characters, and explore—with
searing honesty—the complexities and contradictions that
make us human.
