Publisher's Summary

Sometimes darkness stalks the most beautiful places....

On Doogort East Bog, Achill Island, a body is found. The close community is stunned to learn that it's Lisa Moran, a popular teacher who disappeared two days earlier. 

DS Lucy Golden is assigned to the case. For her, it's personal. As an Achill native, she knows that sometimes great evil can lurk in plain sight. Having moved back from Dublin, she has spent the last 10 years trying to prove herself to her colleagues after her husband was jailed for fraud. This is her chance to put the past behind her. Her teenage son Luc's behaviour, however, is increasingly troubling, and Lucy doesn't have time for distractions.

When another body is found in an abandoned property on the bog, with links to a murder 20 years ago, the stakes are raised - but a pattern is emerging. Can Lucy put the pieces together? Or will her family crisis mean the murderer claims his next victim?

Critic Reviews

"Well plotted and page turning." (Patricia Gibney)

"A tense, fast-paced and deftly plotted thriller, which kept me guessing right to the end. I'm already looking forward to the next outing for Detective Sergeant Lucy Golden and her crew!" (Andrea Carter)

Just the beginning

I’m a big fan of Aoife MacMahon, the narrator. I’m so happy that led me to Martina Murphy and her Lucy Golden murder mysteries. I can’t wait to listen to the rest.

Enjoyed it!

I loved this book and am enjoying the development of the characters from one book to the next. I’m looking forward to book 3. Aoife McMahon is such a star and by far the best narrator of audiobooks!
