APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Sam Blake’s Little Bones finds newly pregnant detective and kick-boxing champion Cathy Connelly investigating what appears at first to be a routine break-in. But she soon uncovers evidence of something far more disturbing: infant remains. Narrated fiercely and exuberantly by Irish actress Aoife McMahon, Little Bones is a kinetic, fast-paced story with an interesting and complicated protagonist as its centre. Cathy is a strong-willed firebrand on the outside but plagued internally by fear and self-doubt. The macabre case Cathy’s investigating is fertile ground for Blake to explore complex ideas about motherhood, pregnancy and women's subjugation in Ireland. Little Bones is the first in Blake’s series of Cathy Connelly crime stories.
