Part of the Inspector Celcius Daly Series

Trespass Synopsis

The abduction of a child entangles Celcius Daly in a forty-year-old quest for justice. Inspector Celcius Daly is leading the search for a ten-year-old boy, abducted in broad daylight from the car park outside Armagh Courthouse. His investigation leads to a notorious group of travellers long suspected of smuggling and organised crime. Digging deeper, Daly discovers some harrowing truths about their past treatment and unearths a family secret linked to an unsolved crime during the Troubles - the disappearance of a young traveller woman and her baby. Under investigation by Internal Affairs, hounded by Special Branch, ostracised by his colleagues, Daly realises just how much he has in common with the outcast travellers. But dare he risk becoming entangled in a vigilante vendetta? Just how far will this group of outsiders go to find their own justice?

Trespass Press Reviews

'Carefully wrought, often lyrical prose, always rich with foreboding' Booklist. 'Quinn is a superb writer and probably one of the best crime novelists around at the moment. Trespass is a wonderful book by any standards' William Ryan's Summer Reading Pick, Sunday Independent. 'Beautiful lyrical language worthy of a major literary work rather than a crime story ... A superb novel, like its predecessors, this may be, but it holds more than its share of truth and is worth the study and understanding of any student of modern history' Crime Review. 'The prose is of a high quality' Irish Examiner. 'Quinn's literary descriptions of the bleak Northern Irish landscape are wonderfully evocative ... if you enjoy a gritty police procedural written with a literary twist, this one is for you' Sunday Independent. 'An outstanding, deeply satisfying and beautifully written police procedural' Irish Independent Top Crime and Thrillers of 2016. 'Quinn's prose has a quality of bleak poetry ... Trespass is a bracing tale of a society ravaged by violence' Irish Times. 'Beautiful writing about ugly events with a plot that's pleasingly serpentine' Sunday Times Crime Club.
