About this deal

Later, as the family gathers to watch the final documentary cut, nervously awaiting the fall-out on Twitter, Henry observes, 'It's the era we’re living in, you see. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. It's been 10 years since the murder, and while no one was convicted for it - Henry Kinsella, Sasanach and blow-in to the island was the prime suspect, and still treated as such by the islanders.

Atmospheric and eerie, I could feel the cold and damp of that tiny Irish island while, at the same time, felt suffocated by the events and the characters. He goes through a period of victim shaming and gaslighting which felt really uncharacteristic, and it seems this was completely looked over as he and Keelin are friends again in the next scene as if nothing happened.The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter. And then on the night of her 37th birthday party, young Nessa Crowley was found murdered in their garden with the suspicion placed firmly on Henry and on Keelin for somehow protecting him. Louise O’Neill has turned her hand to many different genres; young adult, contemporary fiction and now a psychological thriller. I did spot the twists before they arrived and I felt that the pace lagged towards the end but overall I really enjoyed this and I’m already excited for whatever she comes out with next! In this bold, brilliant, disturbing new novel Louise O'Neill shows that deadly secrets are devastating to those who hold them close.

The once confident masters of the small blue planet can only huddle near the campfire of their star—waiting … waiting for a future more mysterious and more uncertain than any they had ever imagined.
