“Hollowpark Hall protects its own.” So the FitzMahon family saying went back in the 1800s. And in 2007, as Hollowpark Hall is being renovated by the current generation of FitzMahons, it’s still said that “If you looked after the house, it would protect you.” Amidst such atmosphere, Sinéad Crowley’s The Belladonna Maze presents a dual timeline saga of secrets, ghostly sightings, and the mystery of a missing girl centred around an enigmatic old house in west Ireland.

When 29-year-old Grace comes to work as a nanny for little Skye FitzMahon in Hollowpark Hall in 2007, she’s hoping to find a place to call home after years of seasonal work in Greece. She also hopes she won’t fall for Skye’s father. But shortly after arriving, other matters prey on Grace’s mind when she sees a strange woman in a window, and hears a voice calling for her to “find me”, “help me” and “protect the house.”

The novel’s second engaging timeline plays out in the past, from the tragic story of a Fitzmahon woman who lived in Hollowpark Hall in 1825, through to the story of a teenage girl who vanished from the grounds during a Halloween party in 1973.

Cleverly plotted and laced with menace, connections between the past and present rise to a thrilling crescendo you’re unlikely to see coming. As a result, this compulsive mystery packs the punch of atmosphere and unexpected twists.
