“Spectacular. At once grittily real, wildly magical and insanely alluring - a siren-song of a novel.” Donal Ryan
Dr Jonathan Murray fears his new-born daughter might not be as harmless as she seems.
Sammy Agnew is wrestling with his dark past, and fears the violence in his blood lurks in his son, too.
The city is in flames and the authorities are losing control. As matters fall into frenzy, and as the lines between fantasy and truth, right and wrong, begin to blur, who will these two fathers choose to protect?
Dark, propulsive and thrillingly original, this tale of fierce familial love and sacrifice fizzes with magic and wonder.
