A chilling festive mystery from the Man Booker Prize winner.

'The body is in the library,' Colonel Osborne said. 'Come this way.'

Following the discovery of the body of a well-loved parish priest at Ballyglass House - the Co. Wexford family seat of the aristocratic, secretive Osborne family - Detective Inspector St. John Strafford is called in from Dublin to investigate.

Facing obstruction from all angles, Strafford is determined to identify the murderer. But, as the snow continues to fall over this ever-expanding mystery, the people of Ballyglass are equally determined to keep their secrets.
