Nessa Crowley's murderer has been protected by silence for ten years.
Until a team of documentary makers decide to find out the truth.

On the day of Henry and Keelin Kinsella's wild party at their big house a violent storm engulfed the island of Inisrun, cutting it off from the mainland. When morning broke Nessa Crowley's lifeless body lay in the garden, her last breath silenced by the music and the thunder.

The killer couldn't have escaped Inisrun, but on-one was charged with the murder. The mystery that surrounded the death of Nessa remained hidden. But the islanders knew who to blame for the crime that changed them forever.

Ten years later a documentary crew arrives, there to lift the lid off the Kinsella's carefully constructed lives, determined to find evidence that will prove Henry's guilt and Keelin's complicity in the murder of beautiful Nessa.

In this bold, brilliant, disturbing new novel Louise O'Neill shows that deadly secrets are devastating to those who hold them close.

Really liked it

Great book, the writing is masterful and sheds a revealing, much needed light on the heavy themes it tackles. Some typos in this edition though, and at least one good - coffee magically turning into tea by the end of the paragraph :)

A page turner

A page turner but one with real food for thought throughout.

Insert all the cliches for a good read

Inhaled it. Couldn’t get enough. Couldn’t put it down etc. Etc. Though dark, and despite the fact that I absolutely raced through it, I was still sad to finish it. Louise O’Neil is an astoundingly talented author. Her story telling, her writing, her understanding and portrayal of relationships. The sensitive subject matter is impeccably researched. I was so excited to read this book, and it didn’t disappoint.
