A Turn for the Bad
by Sheila Connolly

The New York Times bestselling author of An
Early Wake
returns to Ireland where Sullivan’s Pub
owner Maura Donovan gets mixed up with smugglers.

After calling Ireland home for six months, Boston expat
Maura Donovan still has a lot to learn about Irish
ways—and Sullivan’s Pub is her classroom. Maura
didn’t only inherit a business, she inherited a
tight-knit community. And when a tragedy strikes, it’s
the talk of the pub. A local farmer, out for a stroll on the
beach with his young son, has mysteriously disappeared. Did
he drown? Kill himself? The child can say only that he saw a
boat.

Everyone from the local gardai to the Coast Guard is
scouring the Cork coast, but when a body is finally brought
ashore, it’s the wrong man. An accidental drowning or
something more sinister? Trusting the words of the boy and
listening to the suspicions of her employee Mick that the
missing farmer might have run afoul of smugglers, Maura
decides to investigate the deserted coves and isolated
inlets for herself. But this time she may be getting in over
her head…
