Publisher's Summary

My twelve-year-old daughter frequently moans that Ballycarrick is the most boring town in Ireland.

Nothing ever happens here.

She’s right.

And as the local police sergeant, this is something I’m delighted about.

I’ve enough to worry about—the polar ice-caps, the evil monster that’s shrinking my trousers, not to mention the hot flushes—without having to be like one of those gritty Netflix cops, chasing criminals down alleyways and busting drug deals.

So, life is calm and fairly predictable.

Until something unthinkable happens in our sleepy backwater.

A crime, but not like anything I’ve ever seen before.

It’s a complete mystery.

And it’s up to me to solve it.

A story for our times of tolerance

I loved this first book in the series. I have spent some time with a few traveling folks of Scotland. They are wonderful people and as all folks who are “different “ from others, they have suffered abuse. This was a beautiful story and treated the traveler community well.

A delightful, engaging, and poignant story!

What an all ‘round delightful story! It’s funny, true to life (especially when it comes to describing what goes on in a woman’s head), and poignant. The relationship of Mags to her mother, to her husband and daughters, and to her best friend are so realistic, and the element of empathy with cultural outsiders is refreshing. Mix all of that with high suspense, and the result is a delightful and engaging story. Siobhan Waring is really a credit to the story with her excellent narration.
