Synopsis: A drizzly October in Dublin has Minogue daydreaming of the piercing blue skies of Greece: he plans a surprise trip with his wife Kathleen only to be called back to sombre reality by the suicide attempt of his partner in the Garda Murder Squad, Seamus Hoey. To compound his problems, his son has been suspected of gun running. Minogue reluctantly travels to the west of Ireland to help. While he is there, he meets a colourful lawyer, and against his own better instincts, Minogue agrees to do some unofficial digging into the murder of Jane Clark, a young Canadian who was visiting Ireland ten years ago. Minogue and the groggy, beleaguered Hoey are soon enmeshed in the case of Jane Clark and her lover, Jamesy Bourke, the half-crazed poet and local eccentric who was convicted of her murder. After years of electroshock, Bourke's memory is returning, and what he remembers is causing panic in more than one of the local people. Just as the past is another country, and Hallowe'en brings the return of chaos, Minogue descends into an underworld where he must reckon with with a dark past of violence, revenge and death. Part shaman, part cop, part innocent abroad, Minogue enters a hidden Ireland, where the ancient countryside and its forgotten peoples mutely mock and challenge his wish to make the past disclose its secrets.

The murder of a tourist a decade ago has left open wounds. When an outsider begins to question the past, it changes everything. The fourth Inspector Minogue mystery opens on a drizzly October in Dublin: Minogue is daydreaming of Greece s blue skies. His plans for a trip there are suddenly dashed: Hoey, his partner in the Garda Murder Squad, has tried to kill himself. To compound Minogue s problems, family duty calls. His nephew has been arrested for suspected IRA gun running. At the Minogue family farm in west of Ireland he meets a colourful lawyer, and is coaxed into unofficial digging into an old murder case. Along with the groggy Hoey, he is soon enmeshed in the case of that murder victim, Jane Clark, and her lover, Jamesy Bourke, the half-crazed poet and local eccentric who was convicted of her murder. After years of electroshock, Bourke s memory is returning. What he remembers is causing more than just unease. Just as the past is another country and Hallowe en opens the world to chaos, Minogue enters a hidden Ireland. Part shaman, part cop, part innocent abroad, he picks his way through an ancient countryside still haunted by forgotten peoples, into a dark past that mocks his efforts to make the past reveal its secrets. Nothing gets in the way of pace, narrative thrust or intricate story-telling. - Irish Times A first-rate story with marvellous characters. Another masterful tale from a superior author. - Globe Mail (Canada). Bookseller Inventory # APC9781988041049
