Border Angels

Author: Anthony J. Quinn Format: Paperback Release Date: 13/08/2015

A charred corpse and a set of footprints in the snow lead Celcius Daly into the twilight world of people trafficking. Inspector Celcius Daly is hunting for a missing woman who disappeared one winter's night along the Irish border, leaving in her wake the corpses of two men. Soon Daly is involved in a life-or-death chase, leading him deep into border country: a wild terrain of disappearing lanes and blown-up bridges, abandoned ghost-estates and thick forests - the ultimate refuge for anyone who does not want to be found.

Author: Anthony J. Quinn Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/06/2019

A new crime series set in the brooding landscape of the Scottish borders from the author of the Celcius Daly series. Not long out of the fast-track training course at Edinburgh's police college, Detective Sergeant Carla Herron is about to be tested to breaking point. She's been called to Deepwell psychiatric hospital in the Scottish borders to interview a patient who has confessed to the murder of one of the hospital's psychotherapists. The confession is vividly detailed, but for a man locked in a secure ward and under 24-hour surveillance, it is also utterly impossible. So why can't the supposedly murdered psychotherapist be contacted? Why are the hospital staff so secretive, so difficult to work with? Why have other Deepwell patients made disturbingly similar confessions over the past year? Against the advice of her superiors, Carla delves deeper into the hospital's past and is plunged into a labyrinth of jealousies, lies and hallucinations. Struggling to separate fact from fantasy, Carla embarks on a chilling trail through the bleak uplands and dark forests of the Scottish borders, every step taking her closer to a final - deadly - reckoning. 'Quinn sets up a Russian doll narrative, with manipulation within manipulation' GUARDIAN. 'Carefully wrought, often lyrical prose, always rich with foreboding' BOOKLIST.

A bizarre road accident propels Celcius Daly into an investigation that will reveal the truth about his mother's death thirty years ago. Father Aloysius Walsh spent the last years of his life painstakingly collecting evidence of murder: an unsolved killing spree of unparalleled savagery that blighted Ireland's borderlands at the end of the 1970s. Pinned to his bedroom wall, a macabre map charts the grim territory of death: victims, weapons, wounds, dates - and somehow, amid the forest of pins and notes, he had discerned a pattern... So why did Father Walsh deliberately drive off the road to his death? Why, when Inspector Celcius Daly arrives at the scene, does he find Special Branch already there? And why is his mother's name on the priest's map?
