Publisher's Summary

A woman's body washes up on a remote beach on the Inishowen peninsula. Partially clothed, with a strange tattoo on her thigh, she is identified as Marguerite Etienne, a French woman who has been living in the area.

Solicitor Benedicta 'Ben' O'Keeffe is consumed by guilt; Marguerite was her client, and for the second time in her life Ben has failed someone who needed her, with tragic consequences. So when local sergeant Tom Molloy dismisses Marguerite's death as the suicide of a disturbed and lonely woman, Ben cannot let it lie.

Ben uncovers Marguerite's strange past as a member of a French doomsday cult; she escaped 20 years previously, but not without leaving her baby daughter behind.

Disturbed by what appears to be chilling local indifference to Marguerite's death, Ben pieces together the last few weeks of the French woman's life in Inishowen. What she discovers causes her to question the fragile nature of her own position in the area, and she finds herself crossing boundaries both personal and professional to unearth local secrets long buried.

    Story
    "Village life"

    How far do you go to protect you family? When a French woman is pulled out of the sea there is not much of an investigation into her death but local solicitor Benedicta is stricken with guilt as she feels she could have done more for her when she came to see her the day before she died to make a will.

    "Ben" has troubles and demons of her own to battle but she feels the death of her client, dropped by the Garda needs
    Further investigation. With people more willing to hinder than help it seems an almost impossible task.

    A good story, it is well told with a finger biting conclusion. set in the most north westerly part of Ireland the landscape and weather are an intrinsic part of the tale and the romance of Ireland!

    "Great read!"

    I'll be looking for more books by this author. Loved the details of Donegal scenery. It truly is a county of astounding beauty.
