Please do not judge this book by its cover. The yellow scratched name, the reflection in the water have nothing to do with and are not evocative of the great mystery within.  Colin Walsh is a master of the slow build, like a strip tease at half time; drawn out, titillating and ultimately revealing but not until the very last secret is in the open.  In the meantime there are angsty wild teens, lonely adults, love, murder and corruption all wrapped up in a great slangy Irish package.
