Written by James Lawless
Narrated by Andrew Parrella
Duration 6 hours and 20 minutes
When Mariana Rivas arrives from Spain to work as an au pair in the Dublin home of the Mac Converys, Garda Inspector Fionn Mac Convery tries to seduce her. In the course of avoiding Fionn, Mariana experiences the mean streets of Dublin city and meets some of the characters who in his ambitious rise in the police force have been damaged by him.
There are suspicious links with Mac Convery and the murder of the father of the taxi driver Sam Sinclair whom Mariana befriends; and perhaps equally tragically is Mac Convery’s hand in the death of the homeless Tina whom he was supplying with stolen cocaine in return for sex.
These connections begin to cohere as Mariana, together with Mac Convery’s maligned wife and a vengeful Sam, set out to find justice.
‘Lawless (an award-winning writer and poet) has a classy turn of phrase and can whisk up ambience at will. He is an author we should perhaps start taking more seriously.’
‘Lawless is rapidly becoming one of my favourite novelists.’
