After a year away from working in the field, archaeologist Cormac Maguire and pathologist Nora Gavin are back in the Irish bogs, investigating a ninth-century body found buried in the trunk of a car. They discover that the ancient corpse is not alone--pinned beneath it is the body of TV host Benedict Kavanagh. Both men were murdered, but centuries apart--so how did they end up buried together in the bog? Killowen, a nearby artists' colony, may provide an answer to the ancient--and contemporary--murder mysteries. A haunting and lyrical thriller from the author of False Mermaid (2010).
