Sa Pholl Báite
Sa Pholl Báite
Cover: Paperback

Emer Griffiths is missing without a trace. Garda Réamonn Seoighe finds her body in a lonely corner on the banks of the Liffey. Her son, Dan, is devastated by her death, but why is he reluctant to talk to the guards?

Colmán Ó Gríofa, her estranged husband, is in his holiday home on the Béarra peninsula that same weekend, separated from Emer but still devoted to her.

His neighbour Aoife Nic Diarmada supports him as she becomes involved in the case. Together with the authorities, they sift through a mosaic of substantial clues and fabricated evidence. The night witnesses a covert surveillance operation as time inches relentlessly forward. Will the perpetrator be unveiled before another life is claimed?

“SA PHOLL BÁITE captivates readers with its exploration of societal discord, shining a penetrating light on the hidden poisons lurking within the human soul.”
