  • (1888PressRelease) June 10, 2015 - About the Book: This collection of 19 short stories deals with murder, the supernatural, immigration, separation, relationships, love and life. While the stories are set mainly in rural Ireland, some do cross the Irish Sea. They provide a glimpse of Irish life fast disappearing and the stories range from dark comedy to poignancy.

    In "Lady of the Lake", the peace and tranquility of a lakeside village is broken by the murder of a quiet, if somewhat inquisitive stranger. The ticking of an old clock brings back childhood memories of a formidable old woman in "Kate the Bush". The short story "The Homecoming" explores the relationship between a father and son against the background of immigration and advancing years. In "A Grave Matter", Flaherty's Pub is frequented by local drunkards, headers, wasters and anybody else who happens to be passing by and has the misfortune to call in.

    Excerpt from the book:
    "Slowly, the wet muddy body was lifted into the tiny boat, which was kept steady by Nora.

    "Be careful there now with the poor man." said Nora.

    She quickly realised the irony of those words.

    "Now with a couple of concrete blocks for company at the bottom of the lake he won't be troubling us anymore," said Danjo.

    "How right you are, Danjo - they'll not be bothered dragging Lough Gara again," replied Mickey Dick, suddenly sounding quite brave and pleased with himself.

    "He'll not be found at those depths. God rest his soul," added Nora.

    She watched as they disappeared into the darkness of the night. Then Nora Doran turned for home. Walking up the road her thoughts were suddenly shattered by the sound of the powerful explosion that illuminated the lake waters.
    Once again, death had cast its dark shadow over the lake."
