DISAPPEARED introduces Celcius Daly, a Belfast Police Inspector laden with flawed judgment and misplaced loyalties.

A retired detective vanishes... The wanderings of a man succumbing to dementia, or something more sinister?

An ex-intelligence officer is tortured to death... But why was his obituary printed in the local paper before he died?

A son seeks his father's long-lost grave... And vengeance for his murder.

A stone-cold killer stalks the outskirts of Belfast... At whose behest is he hunting his targets?

Betrayal, secrets, lies... As Inspector Celcius Daly will discover, in Northern Ireland the past is never dead.

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.
