The richly atmospheric new Strafford and Quirke mystery, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Snow.

‘He had seen drowned people. A sight not to be forgotten.’

1950s, rural Ireland. A loner comes across a mysteriously empty car in a field.

Knowing he shouldn’t approach, but unable to hold back, he soon finds himself embroiled in a troubling missing person’s case, as a husband claims his wife may have thrown herself into the sea.

Called in from Dublin to investigate is Detective Inspector Strafford, who soon turns to his old ally – the flawed but brilliant pathologist Quirke – a man he is linked to in increasingly complicated ways.
