Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The widely acclaimed debut novel—about three sisters, three tales, and a very dark secret—thats a “chilling bedtime story for adults.”—People (three stars)

Fiona Walsh thought her familys secrets would follow her to her grave, but when her diary is found by a young postman, Niall, the truth about her untimely demise—and that of her sister and aunt—begins to see the light of day. Its the most tragic love story hes ever heard.

Niall soon becomes enveloped by the mystery surrounding Jim—an itinerant storyteller who traveled through Ireland enrapturing audiences and wooing women with his macabre mythic sagas—though a trail of murder followed him wherever he went. The Walsh sisters, fiercely loyal to each other, were not immune to “darling” Jims powers of seduction, but found themselves in harms way when they began to uncover his treacherous past. Niall must now continue his dangerous hunt for the truth—and for the vanished third sister—while theres still time.

And in the woods, the wolves from Jims stories begin to gather.

Joan Reyes, January 1, 2010 (view all comments by Joan Reyes)
A "locked room" mystery that is improved with the diaries of two of the characters and its setting in County Cork and Dublin.

The book keeps the reader engaged throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
