A bizarre road accident propels Celcius Daly into an investigation that could reveal the truth about his mother's death thirty years ago

Father Aloysius Walsh spent the last years of his life painstakingly collecting evidence of a yearlong killing spree, unparalleled savagery that blighted Ireland's borderlands at the end of the 1970s. Pinned to his bedroom wall, a macabre map charts the grim territory of death—victims, weapons, wounds, dates—and somehow, amid the forest of pins and notes, he had discerned a pattern. . . .

So why did Father Walsh deliberately drive through a cordon of policemen and off the road to his death? Why, when Inspector Celcius Daly arrives at the scene, does he find Special Branch already there? And why is Daly's mother’s name on the priest's map?

The past poisons the present, and Daly’s life will never be the same again.

Silence is the 3rd book in the Inspector Celcius Daly Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.


"Superbly original ... among the best of the many crime novels that have tackled the Troubles." —Sunday Express.

"A beautifully written example of how enriching a novel can be if the author does not for a second neglect the importance of locale ... the experience of reading the book is irresistible." —Barry Forshaw, Independent

"An edge-of-the-seat thriller ... beautifully written ... Outstanding." —Irish Independent.

"The plot surprises keep coming ... If you want the philosophy of the Troubles, and some of the reality, you'll get it here." —Irish News, Book of the Week.
