Catryn Power’s debut collection of short fiction is a love letter to her career in archaeology.
We meet the ghost of a French nurse, a forensic anthropologist solving a decades-old murder, and an international gem smuggler.
Join her characters as they escape attackers in an ancient crypt, relive the murder of an old Irish knight and uncover human remains in the trenches of World War One.
Intrigue and forensics fuse in these ethereal tales of history and the supernatural. Power’s stories will captivate and surprise you.
Profits from the book will go to the Cork Parkinsons Support Group.
