DISAPPEARED introduces Celcius Daly, a Belfast Police Inspector laden with flawed judgment and misplaced loyalties. One of 2012's top ten crime novels.

A retired Special Branch Detective succumbing to early-stage dementia disappears from his remote home in rural Northern Ireland. An ex-intelligence officer is tortured to death. But why was his obituary printed in the local paper before his death? A son seeks his father's long-lost body and vengeance against those who murdered him. A stone-cold killer stalks the outskirts of Belfast. But at whose behest is he hunting his targets? And why?

All are connected by a single strand spun out of the past... but as Inspector Celcius Daly knows, the past is never dead... it's not even past.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This should make Quinn a star, for it is unquestionably one of the crime novels of the year, written in peerless prose, with a delicate plot - this is a novel to be read slowly and to be savoured sip by sip, as it slowly but surely snares you in its grip' Daily Mail.
'One of the best books of the year.' The Strand Magazine.
'Quinn enriches Disappeared with Irish history and he does an excellent job of ratcheting up the tension' The Rap Sheet.
'Betrayal, Pathos, Compassion, Brutality... As beautifully written as the wild ferocity of Lough Neagh' Ken Bruen.
'The beautifully written Disappeared is much more than a routine whodunnit as it unflinchingly lays bare Northern Ireland's society as it tries to come to terms with its violent past. Outstanding' Irish Independent.
'Widely anticipated ... A tough yet lyrical novel, evoking that desperate period of Irish history' Sunday Times.
'The Troubles of Northern Ireland are not over. This message is so disturbingly, convincingly and elegantly conveyed in Anthony Quinn's first novel ... Beautifully haunting' The Times.
'A highly original take on a much-traversed topic. He writes with melancholic elegance, and persuades us that the Troubles are never over' The Times, Books of the Year.
'Atmospheric, elegant ... It is a police procedural of the highest quality and has remained in my mind since I encountered it five months ago ... A crime novel to be savoured' Daily Mail, Books of the Year.
