Someone has come to this quagmire to sink their dreadful handiwork -- and Nora soon realizes that she is being pulled deeper into the land and all it holds: the secrets to a cache of missing gold, a tumultuous love affair with archaeologist Cormac Maguire, and the dark mysteries and desires of the workers at the site. As they draw closer to the truth, Nora and Cormac must exercise the utmost caution to avoid becoming the next victims of a ruthless killer fixated on the gruesome notion of triple death.
This melancholy literary thriller is the second in a series. American forensic pathologist Nora Gavin and Irish archaeologist Cormac Maguire, colleagues and lovers, are studying an ancient corpse preserved in Loughnabrone Bog. The centuries-deceased man appears to have undergone a Celtic sacrificial ritual known as the triple death. Then more contemporary bodies begin turning up in the bog, also bearing the marks of the triple death, and Nora must figure out who among the many possible suspects is the modern murderer.
"[E]motionally and intellectually gorgeous....Hart's language sings, and the gothic atmosphere lingers the way peat clings to the skin of bog workers." 08/16/2004 Kirkus Reviews
"Myriad twists and turns juice the plot and deepen the atmosphere in Hart's moody second offering." 08/01/2004
