Inspector Martin Aitken's life is a mess. Divorced, his career's in chaos, and the last thing he needs this Christmas Even is a strange woman collapsed on a Dublin street. Ellen Donnelly is a woman on a mission, coming to Ireland to find her mother and escape her unfaithful husband. Dr Milton Amery is a New York plastic surgeon. All three of their roads lead to Inishowen.


"A powerful, moving adventure of raw fate and betrayed love" Independent on Sunday "This is a tremendous book, affecting, intelligent, ironic, humane and utterly convincing. It is also extremely funny" Spectator "Inishowen is a vast page-turner, full of compassion, laughter and zest for the human condition, as well as a rattling good story" Irish Times "O'Connor is an enviably talented writer... A very fine novelist" Glasgow Herald "Ireland's most versatile writer... His storytelling is masterful, and his characters are real and vibrant... A sombre, often heartbreaking story... O'Connor conducts his bittersweet symphony with humour, sensitivity and immense style" Independent on Sunday
