Haunting and unsettling, Turncoat is a story of guilt, survival and the terrible price of self-knowledge, told through the voice of a detective with a double life from acclaimed author Anthony J Quinn.
The sole survivor of a murderous ambush, a Belfast police detective is forced into a desperate search for a mysterious informer that takes him to a holy island on Lough Derg, a place shrouded in strange mists and hazy rain, where nothing is as it first appears to be.
A keeper of secrets and a purveyor of lies, the detective finds himself surrounded by enemies disguised as pilgrims and is drawn deeper into the mysteries of the purgatorial island, where he is forced to confront a series of disturbing secrets and ghosts in his own life.
Descending into paranoia and self-doubt, he uncovers a sinister panorama of cover-ups and conspiracies. The closer he edges to the truth, the deeper he is drawn into the currents of power, violence and guilt engulfing his country....
"This should make Quinn a star, for it is unquestionably one of the crime novels of the year." (Daily Mail)
"Beautifully written...a novel that demonstrates how capacious the crime fiction genre can be." (The Independent)
