Why have luminaries of the world of conceptual art been kidnapped? And why has Baroness (Jack) Troutbeck – who has publicly described them all as knaves or fools – gone missing too? As victims surface publicly and horrifically dead, in what become ‘The Hommage Murders’, can she be rescued in time?
About the Author
Since 1993 Ruth has written seriously and/or frivolously for almost every national newspaper in the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom and appears frequently on radio and television in Ireland, the UK and on the BBC World Service. Ruth feels both Irish and English and greatly enjoys being part of both cultures. The Anglo-Irish Murders, her ninth crime novel, is a satire on the peace process. Three times a bridesmaid, she has been shortlisted by the Crime Writers Association for the John Creasey Award for the best first novel and twice for the Last Laugh award for the funniest crime novel of the year.
