A dead child on a London estate and the finger of suspicion pointing at one reclusive Irish family: the Greens...

'As much of a compulsive read as the first'THE TIMES'One masterful novel... Nolan has excelled herself'TELEGRAPH'A writer to be read on her own terms'FINANCIAL TIMESIt's 1990 in London and Tom Hargreaves has it all: a burgeoning career as a reporter, fierce ambition, and a brisk disregard for the 'peasants' - ordinary people, his readers, easy tabloid fodder. His star looks set to rise when he stumbles across a scoop: a dead child on a London estate, grieving parents loved across the neighbourhood, and the finger of suspicion pointing at one reclusive family of Irish immigrants and 'bad apples': the Greens.

At their heart sits Carmel: beautiful, broken, and once destined for a future beyond her circumstances until life - and love - got in her way. Now, with the police closing in on a suspect and the tabloids hunting their monster, Carmel must confront the secrets and silences that have trapped her family for so many generations.
