Lorna Brady wakes to discover a corpse in her home with no recollection of how it got there – or if she’s responsible. A survivor of the infamous Magdalene Laundries, she’s been plagued for years by bouts of sleepwalking and haunted by vivid flashbacks of her time there. When Detective Colman Akande arrives to investigate the seemingly unrelated murder of a priest he’s drawn into a game of cat-and-mouse as he and Lorna search for answers in a small town in Ireland full of long-buried secrets.
