At first Dr Kenneth Wilson thought she had been the victim of an accidental shooting. In fact a subsequent post-mortem revealed that she had been stabbed thirty seven times.' Eoin McNamee's wonderful novel, which is based on one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in recent history, is at once a gripping thriller and a danse macabre through a shadowy world of corruption and sexual intrigue - a darkly lyric narrative of white mischief in post-war Ireland, of false accusation and savage murder, presided over by the haunted, tragic figure of Patricia Curran."@en ;
