In Northern Ireland’s darkest corner, the Troubles have never ended

Though bombs no longer rock Belfast, for some the fight goes on. Retired Special Branch agent David Hughes disappears after looking into the previously closed case of Oliver Jordan, who went missing at the hands of the IRA decades ago. Soon after, a former spy is found bludgeoned to death, the day after placing his own obituary in the newspaper. Beneath Northern Ireland’s modern calm, ancient jealousies threaten to rend the country asunder once more.

A Catholic detective in a Protestant nation, Celcius Daly knows too well the agonies of sectarian strife. To solve this string of murders, he must reach decades into the past, confronting a painful history that Ireland would prefer to forget.


Quinn enriches Disappeared with Irish history and he does an excellent job of ratcheting up the tension as this yarn progresses. - The Rap Sheet

Quinn has developed a plot that immerses the reader into a darkness we have only read about in the papers or seen on the late night news. - The Morris Chair

Celcius Daly is a decent, hardworking police officer in a world that seems dead-set against him. His hard work and determination to get to the truth, no matter what the costs are, are admirably heroic qualities and make him a most agreeable protagonist. - At the Scene of the Crime

“Disappeared is a major piece of work. Eerily tender, a wonderfully wrought classic that is a landmark in the fiction of Northern Ireland. . . . Line up the glittering prizes of mystery. This one is going to take ’em all.” - Ken Bruen, award-winning author of Rilke on Black
