Publisher Description

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Marian Keye's heartbreaking stunner of a novel, The Mystery of Mercy Close, read by the actress Niamh Daly.

Helen Walsh doesn't believe in fear - it's just a thing invented by men to get all the money and good jobs - and yet she's sinking. Her work as a Private Investigator has dried up, her flat has been repossessed and now some old demons have resurfaced.

Not least in the form of her charming but dodgy ex-boyfriend Jay Parker, who shows up with a missing persons case. Money is tight and Jay is awash with cash, so Helen is forced to take on the task of finding Wayne Diffney, the 'Wacky One' from boyband Laddz.

Things ended messily with Jay. And she's never going back there. Besides she has a new boyfriend now, the very sexy detective Artie Devlin and it's all going well. But the reappearance of Jay is stirring up all kinds of stuff she thought she'd left behind.

Playing by her own rules, Helen is drawn into a dark and glamorous world, where her worst enemy is her own head and where increasingly the only person she feels connected to is Wayne, a man she's never even met.

Utterly compelling, moving and very very funny, The Mystery of Mercy Close is unlike any novel you've ever read and Helen Walsh - courageous, vulnerable and wasp-tongued - is the perfect heroine for our times.

Long winded, slow moving and tedious!

I was really disappointed with this book. Nothing really happens, it takes her the whole 15 hours of very poor investigation to find Wayne which is intertwined with a never ending back history of the Helen's struggle with depression -it's all very tedious with a couple of marginally funny moments.

The mysteries of mercy close

I adored this audiobook so much so I've listened to it three times(not consecutively) ha ha. This book was hilariously funny(as are all of the Walsh family books) they have me in hysterics one minute and sad tears the next. I am a self confessed Marian Keyes junkie😀
