A New York Times Bestselling Author -- In 1950s Ireland newspapers are censored, social conventions are strictly defined, and appalling crimes are hushed up. Why? Because the Catholic Church controls the lives of nearly everyone. But when the body of his daughter Phoebe?s close friend is brought to his autopsy table, Quirke can no longer play by the Church?s rules. And when he investigates Jimmy?s Minor death, Quirke learns just how far the Church will go to protect its own.
