As her adoptive mother lays dying, journalist Cara Joyce overhears a shocking piece of information about her origins. It connects her to an unsolved death – that of Lucia Casey, a young woman whose body was found buried in a Connemara bog nearly thirty years ago.  To this day, the mystery of Lucia’s disappearance and death remains unsolved.


Cara’s quest to find out what happened reunites her with the powerful Casey family. But as her obsession with the truth begins to take over her life, she finds herself increasingly at odds with those around her. Who is behind Lucia’s death and what are they hiding? And what will Cara risk in the present to solve the mysteries of the past?
