Summary

No one knows who did it, least of all the police. Somewhere, in this tight-knit Irish Catholic community, someone must know something. Fourteen-year-old Kitty Doherty, pregnant with the dead man's child, is a danger to everyone who needs to keep the secret. Her mother, Maura, and best friend Nellie's grandmother decide the girls must be spirited away to Ireland to await the birth of the baby. But it isn't easy to keep a secret that big.

Critic reviews

"The characters are engaging, the streets scenes cinematic and the theme of the novel powerful." ( The Times)
"A vigorous and vibrant story... As fast-paced as it is entertaining. An addictive novel to be devoured in one sitting." ( The Sunday Express on The Four Streets)

Very enjoyable

Having finished The Four Streets I just had to read the follow up. The story makes for uncomfortable reading in places but is so well written you just have to read on. The twists and turns and predictability just leave you wanting more. I think that the narrator s voice lends perfectly to this story.

Very enjoyable

After listening to 'The Four Streets', I had to know more and find out what happens next in the lives of the characters. Therefore continued with the follow up book 'Hide her Name'. Equally enjoyable and well read by the narrator, just need to know which book comes next .....,,!

Moving and emotional.

This was at times a shocking upsetting listen but extremely moving and well told. I was engrossed in the emotion of it all.
