The Good Book Guide Review

A retired detective disappears; has he succumbed to dementia and wandered off – or has something more sinister happened to him? At the same time, an ex-intelligence officer has been brutally tortured to death – but his obituary has been printed in the local paper a week before he died. These mysteries – and several others – fall on the desk of the intuitive Inspector Celcius Daly, and he is to be reminded that in Northern Ireland, the past continues to cast a long shadow over the present. This is a notably well-written multi-stranded crime novel.

Disappeared Press Reviews

'This should make Quinn a star, for it is unquestionably one of the crime novels of the year, written in peerless prose, with a delicate plot - this is a novel to be read slowly and to be savoured sip by sip, as it slowly but surely snares you in its grip'
Daily Mail

'One of the best books of the year.' The Strand Magazine

'Quinn enriches Disappeared with Irish history and he does an excellent job of ratcheting up the tension' The Rap Sheet

'Betrayal, Pathos, Compassion, Brutality... As beautifully written as the wild ferocity of Lough Neagh' Ken Bruen

'The beautifully written Disappeared is much more than a routine whodunnit as it unflinchingly lays bare Northern Ireland's society as it tries to come to terms with its violent past. Outstanding'
Irish Independent
