American pathologist Nora Gavin has come to the Irish midlands to examine a body unearthed at a desolate spot known as the Lake of Sorrows. As with all the artifacts culled from its prehistoric depths, the bog has effectively preserved the dead man's remains -- his multiple wounds suggest he was the victim of an ancient pagan sacrifice known as "triple death." But signs of a more recent slaying emerge when a second body, bearing a similar wound pattern, is found -- this one sporting a wristwatch.
Someone has come to this quagmire to sink their dreadful handiwork -- and Nora soon realizes that she is being pulled deeper into the land and all it holds: the secrets to a cache of missing gold, a tumultuous love affair with archaeologist Cormac Maguire, and the dark mysteries and desires of the workers at the site. As they draw closer to the truth, Nora and Cormac must exercise the utmost caution to avoid becoming the next victims of a ruthless killer fixated on the gruesome notion of triple death.
AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR ERIN HART DELIVERS A SEARING NEW NOVEL OF
SUSPENSE, BRILLIANTLY MELDING MODERN FORENSICS AND IRISH MYTH AND
MYSTERY IN THIS CHARGED THRILLER.
When workers at a vast peat extraction site in the bleak and tortured landscape of the Irish midlands uncover a long-buried, badly damaged corpse, they call in pathologist Nora Gavin. The body has apparently been strangled, slashed and drowned - the ritual 'triple death' of Ireland's blood-soaked pagan past. But moments after Nora arrives a much more recent victim is discovered. Like the ancient body, this new corpse seems to have suffered the triple death... Nora and her lover, archaeologist Cormac Maguire, must team up professionally once more. Soon they are enmeshed in a web of tangled desires and terrible secrets. The danger mounts, fuelled by rumours of ancient gold, illicit liaisons and long-delayed revenge. Though they do not realise it, Nora and Cormac have come far too close to the truth - placing them in ever-greater danger of becoming a ruthless killer's next victims.
After a year away from working in the field, archaeologist Cormac
Maguire and pathologist Nora Gavin are back in the bogs,
investigating a ninth-century body found buried in the trunk of a
car. They discover that the ancient corpse is not alone--pinned
beneath it is the body of Benedict Kavanagh, missing for mere
months and familiar to television viewers as a philosopher who
enjoyed destroying his opponents in debate. Both men were viciously
murdered, but centuries apart--so how did they end up buried
together in the bog?
The dazzling, award-winning debut in a series that delivers
mystery, romance, suspense, and fascinating forensic detail
