'Banville is one of my favourite writers alive.'
REBECCA F. KUANG

'The repressed and sinister world of 1950s Ireland is exposed in beautiful, sometimes chilling prose.'
FINANCIAL TIMES

The richly atmospheric new Strafford and Quirke murder 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.

Praise for Snow:

'Superb . . . crime fiction for the connoisseur.' The Times
'Outstanding.' Irish Independent
'Exquisite.' Daily Mail
'Compelling.' Sunday Times
'Superb to the last drop.' Independent
