Henry Garrick, a local car dealer who was maimed in an accident five months before, has apparently taken his own life. A simple case, it should be wrapped up in a few days. But something doesn’t feel right to Belfast detective Serena Flanagan, despite the fact that there is no evidence of foul play.

As she investigates, Flanagan interviews Roberta Garrick, Henry’s widow, who is comforted in her grief by Reverend Peter McKay, rector of the local church and a close family friend. Flanagan is carrying heavy personal burdens, her mind and marriage nearly at breaking point, and on impulse she confides in the rector, seeking his spiritual help. But with the secrets McKay is keeping, he is in no position to help anyone. His faith long gone, he is lost in a spiral of lust and guilt from which he sees no escape. Until, that is, the policewoman offers him a glimpse of salvation.

Flanagan ignores her superiors’ advice to close the case, call it a suicide, and be done with it. As she picks at the threads of the dead man’s life, a disturbing picture emerges, and she realizes the widow Roberta Garrick is not what she seems . . .

“A Boston Globe Best Book of 2016.”
“Neville’s books are dark but elegantly written case studies of the roots of violence, and here he writes thoughtfully, about children who come from the streets, go through the foster programs and prison systems, and are either reborn or dragged back into the sorrows that are their inheritance.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“In the world of modern crime fiction, Stuart Neville is a supernova. I buy his books the day they’re released because I can’t wait to see where he takes me next. And I’m never disappointed. ”
—Dennis Lehane, author of World Gone By
“Belfast has been a significant presence in Neville’s mysteries, but this compelling procedural is a more universal tale in which unchecked evil flourishes. Flanagan, a breastcancer survivor undergoing counseling, is a fallible protagonist whose appeal grows with each book; don’t miss her here. ”
—Booklist, Starred Review
