A World Full of Weeping

By Keith MacCarthy

‘McCarthy lays on the grisly detail with a practising doctor’s detached eye.’ –Publishers Weekly

An invitation to spend a week or two with childhood friends over New Year seemed an excellent idea to help Helena’s recovery after her cancer treatment. Helena had grown up with the Hickmans, had spent many happy holidays with them, and the fact that they lived in a castle surrounded by forest on the edge of a lake made it an even more perfect spot to recuperate. But when a man is found burned to death in a car on the edge of the castle estate the apparently irrelevant though horrible incident creates unexpected disturbances in the lives of all those living in the castle.

Helena and her partner John Eisenmenger, caught in the middle of it all, cannot understand why. Nor can Detective Constable Sally Felty, navigating her first few months on the job, or her attractive yet elusive superior, Inspector Sauerwine. But the unpleasantness grows and worse is to come, for there are secrets in the castle — secrets that are of profound importance not only to the Hickmans, but also to the police service’s treatment of a previous case, and to Helena and her past…

A World Full of Weeping is a grippingly complex thriller than keeps the reader in suspense right to the very end.
