Publisher's Summary

When a wanted war criminal masquerading as a healer settles in a small west coast Irish village, the community are in thrall. One woman, Fidelma McBride, falls under his spell, and in this searing novel Edna O'Brien charts the consequence of that fatal attraction.
This is a story about love, the artifice of evil and the terrible necessity of accountability in our shattered, damaged world.

A good they say

Heart breaking book. I read it and it made me grateful for my own home and a snippet of understanding of the ache to be able to live in your country of choice with people you can trust. How fragile we are, and attitudes change by the day.

The Little Red Chairs

A disturbing story and not one that I particularly liked. At times l wasn't sure where Edna O Brien was going with the tail. It felt disjointed and not at all like anything l had read of hers before.
