Summary

Investigative journalist Oonagh O'Neil's instincts tell her when a story is worth pursuing. And the death of an elderly priest on the altar of his Glasgow church, just as she is about to expose the shocking truth behind the closure of an infamous Magdalene Institution, tells her a sinister cover up is in play. 

DI Alec Davies is appointed to investigate the priest's death. He and Oonagh go way back. But now they're united in uncovering not only what happened to the lost babies secretly born in the Institution but what happened to the young women that survived by vowing loyalty to one another...forever. The doors of the Magdalene laundries hid the most harrowing secrets from the world - secrets Oonagh is determined to reveal, whatever the price....

A MUST LISTEN

An excellent story...beautifully written and narrated by one of the best. I'd planned to listen to a few chapters each night...in the end I couldn't put it down!!

Gripping storyline

Great plot, strong believable characters, snappy dialogue and the marvellous setting of Glasgow. The narrator's voiceless perfect. I was hooked

Audio quality is horrendous

My favorite narrator, but it’s hard to listen to. I hope to get a new version of the problem is fixed or the book is re-recorded.
