  1. Sarah Turner

    I have read all of Louise O Neills novels and this confirms my view of her true versatility as an author. Once again writing adult fiction ( following the superb Almost Love), and once again tackling important subjects. This time it’s domestic abuse and coercive control set against a murder mystery backdrop.

    Keelin and Henry Kinsella live a millionaire lifestyle on an Irish island but when a young woman is found dead at one of their parties their lives change forever. Told in past and present the mystery of what happened to Nessa Crowley is almost secondary to the horror of the relationship that Keelin lives with.

    A really commercial read too.

    I absolutely loved ‘After The Silence’ and couldn’t wait to find out what happened. The story starts with the Crowley girls, three sisters on a remote Irish island, where they are renowned for their beauty. From the start you know that one sister, Nessa, has died, and the story jumps back and forward to reveal what happened on the night in question.

    The main family in the story are a rich Anglo-Irish man Henry Kinsella, Keelin, his wife from the island and their two children. There’s not a lot of love for Henry on the island, and he has been investigated for the death of Nessa Crowley, but released without charge. Ten years on and there are still mutterings in the town about what happened that night and lots of sideways suspicious glances at the whole family.

    The relationship between Henry and Keelin is idyllic and luxurious from the outside but all is not what it seems, and when two investigative reporters come to the island to find out the true story of the Crowley girls, things become even more tense.

    Impossible to put down, this is a fantastic book
