In Northern Ireland’s darkest corner, the Troubles have never ended
 
Though bombs no longer rock Belfast, for some the fight goes on. Retired Special Branch agent David Hughes disappears after looking into the previously closed case of Oliver Jordan, who went missing at the hands of the IRA decades ago.

Beneath Northern Ireland’s modern calm, ancient jealousies threaten to rend the country asunder once more.
 
A Catholic detective in a Protestant nation, Celcius Daly knows too well the agonies of sectarian strife. To solve this string of murders, he must reach decades into the past, confronting a painful history that Ireland would prefer to forget.

Disappeared is the 1st book in the Inspector Celcius Daly Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Editorial Reviews

“Irish journalist Quinn’s fiction debut kicks off a series featuring Northern Ireland police inspector Celcius Daly. This first installment manages to both entertain and enlighten, taking decades of sectarian violence that preceded present-day calm and using this as the background for a suspenseful whodunit.” —Publishers Weekly“Quinn has developed a plot that immerses the reader into a darkness we have only read about in the papers or seen on the late night news.” —The State-Journal Register “Disappeared is a major piece of work. Eerily tender, a wonderfully wrought classic that is a landmark in the fiction of Northern Ireland. . . . Line up the glittering prizes of mystery. This one is going to take ’em all.” —Ken Bruen, award-winning author of Rilke on Black
