It's 1975. A baby, minutes old, is forcibly taken from its devastated mother. In 2010, the body of an elderly woman is found in a Dublin public park in the depths of winter. Detective Inspector Tom Reynolds is working the case. He's convinced the murder is linked to historical events that took place in the notorious Magdalene Laundries. Reynolds and his team follow the trail to an isolated convent in the Irish countryside. But once inside, it becomes disturbingly clear that the killer is amongst them....

I am getting a bit bored with substandard books and narrators but I was suprised by this book - as having gone to Ireland and been to one of these (homes!! ) for unmarried woman and work houses I found this book interesting and having a really good plot - will try more of this author
