The sumptuous, propulsive, sun-kissed follow up to the bestselling Snow, from the Booker Prize winning author
‘He wanted to know who she was, and why he was convinced he had some unremembered connection with her. It was as simple as that. But he knew it wasn’t. It wasn’t simple at all.’
When Dublin pathologist Quirke glimpses a familiar face while on holiday with his wife, it’s hard, at first, to tell whether his imagination is just running away with him. Could she really be who he thinks she is, and have a connection with a crime that nearly brought ruin to an Irish political dynasty?
Unable to ignore his instincts, Quirke makes a call back home and Detective St John Strafford is soon dispatched to Spain. But he’s not the only one on route: as a terrifying hitman hunts down his prey, they are all set for a brutal showdown.

Superb and shocking . . . more than a touch of genius.
This is crime writing of the finest quality, elegant, distinctive and utterly absorbing. Banville never lets the tension flag as it builds to a heart-breaking, poignant finale.
An elegant, enjoyable and often surprisingly funny read, with a plot full of secrets, lies, cover-ups and treachery in high places.
Banville’s sly observations about his characters are a joy to read.
A subtle and atmospheric thriller.
