Andrea Carter

“Haunting, atmospheric, and gripping. One of the finest Irish mystery debuts of recent years. Tana French has some serious competition.” — John Connolly

Soon to be adapted for television.

Summer has arrived in Inishowen, and solicitor Ben O’Keeffe is sorely tempted by a job offer from an American law firm. But before making any life-changing decisions, she has her assistant Leah’s wedding to attend at the newly restored Greysbridge Hotel, with its private beach and beautiful pier. It’s the perfect location, but the festivities are brutally cut short when a young American staying at the hotel drowns in full view of the wedding guests.

When a second death is discovered the same evening, Ben finds herself embroiled in a real country house mystery, where all the guests are suspects…
