The worlds of business, Irish politics, and crime collide when two men with the same name, from the same family, die on the same night. One death is a gangland murder, the other, apparently, a road accident. Was it a coincidence? That’s the official version of events. But when a family member, Gina Rafferty, starts asking questions, this notion quickly unravels. Told repeatedly that she should stop asking questions, Gina becomes more determined than ever to find out the truth, to establish a connection between the two deaths but in doing so, she embarks on a path that will push certain powerful people to their limits.

“Winterland sets a dramatically high benchmark for emerald noir. With all the operatic inevitability of Greek tragedy, it anatomises what greed has done to Ireland. A resonant, memorable and uncomfortable read.” — Val McDermid
“This is the colossus of Irish crime fiction… It is a noir masterpiece, the bar against which all future works will be judged.” — Ken Bruen
