Als Frank hoort dat de koffer van Rosie Daley is gevonden, staat zijn wereld stil. Twintig jaar geleden zouden Rosie en hij samen weglopen om in Londen een nieuw leven te beginnen, maar op het afgesproken tijdstip kwam ze niet opdagen. Was ze alleen vertrokken? Had ze een ander? Hij is er nooit achter gekomen. Frank keert terug naar de arbeidersbuurt in Dublin waar ze destijds woonden, en waar zijn - in zijn ogen nog altijd even verschrikkelijke - ouders, broers en zussen en Rosies familie nog steeds wonen. Kort daarop wordt Rosies lijk gevonden. In de maanden die volgen komt Frank ontstellende dingen te weten - over zijn familie, wat er destijds gebeurd is, en uiteindelijk over zichzelf. Er ontrolt zich een familiedrama vol ellende waarbij iedereen betrokken lijkt te zijn.

I wasn't sure I was going to like the narrator of this, the third book in the series but boy was I wrong. The story was well told as usual. Also, for folks that don't want to do the "series" thing, each book can totally stand alone since they are all told from a different person's point of view and ...
