Review:

Claire McGowan's Paula Maguire series goes from strength to strength, with each book more gripping and moving than the last. I read The Silent Dead with my heart in my mouth; it's a searing portrait of post-Troubles Northern Ireland, and a brilliant examination of the burdens our children carry for us. I can't wait for the next instalment

Astonishing, powerful and immensely satisfying
