DS Fiona Madden is back in Galway and living happily with her partner Ashling McGoldrick. Her quiet life is disrupted by the disappearance of a teenager and the arrival of a young man claiming to be the son she gave up for adoption.
The disappearance of the girl brings Fiona back to her native village and resonates with her own past. If the young arrival is indeed her son, Fiona must face up to decisions she made. Both events dredge up ghosts from Fiona’s past. Solving the mystery of the girl’s disappearance and murder will expose the immorality hiding beneath the normal exterior of her village. And can she reconcile with the fact that she gave her son away.

This fascinating, suspense-thrilled series set around the Jewish gangs of New York in the early-mid twentieth century continues with another page-turner.
Would you gamble everything you possess to win more than you can imagine?
Jewish gangster, Alex Cohen leaves jail to find salvation from the 1940s mob in the hotels of Las Vegas. When Bugsy Siegel invites him to take over sports betting in Nevada, Alex must figure out how to get back to the top table in New York without attracting the Feds’ attention.
If he succeeds then he will regain his self respect, but if he fails then the last members of the national crime syndicate will cut him dead and he will be left a nobody or wind up a corpse. And after he bumps into his childhood sweetheart, he has a once in a lifetime opportunity to win her heart. But Alex knows the criminal underworld has the habit of spilling over into his personal life and when Meyer Lansky asks him to murder Siegel, Alex must choose what is truly important to him.
The fourth book in the Alex Cohen series is an historical thriller novel, which rips open the Jewish mob’s involvement in the birth of modern Vegas. Leopold Borstinski’s shattering crime fiction deals a royal flush to each reader.
