Description

‘A superb novel, evoking a bygone era when women could not afford to put a foot wrong’
SUNDAY TIMES
‘This isn't just a mystery novel: it's a window into a vanished world’
TANA FRENCH 

Some stories demand to be told. They keep coming back,
echoing down through the decades, until they find a teller . . .


Dublin, 1943
Actress Julia Bridges disappears.
Her body is never found.
 
Dublin, 1968
The bones of Julia Bridges are discovered in a back garden.
Nicoletta Sarto, an ambitious junior reporter for the Irish Sentinel, investigates the mystery of Julia’s disappearance, drawing her into the tangled underworld of the illegal abortion industry.

But some stories remain a mystery for a reason, and it’s not long before this one stirs up buried secrets from Nicoletta’s own past. Secrets that perhaps should stay buried . . .
