Waterstones Says

A retired police officer is dragged back into a perplexing case from his past in this haunting, meditative novel of memory and survival from the author of Days Without End.

Signed Edition - A Standard Edition is available here

'Have you ever been the custodian of a story no one else believed?' 'Oh yes,' he said. 'You have?' 'Yes,' he said. 'Then I can tell you.'

Recently retired police officer Tom Kettle is settling into the quiet of his new home, a lean-to annexed to a Victorian castle overlooking the Irish Sea. For months he has barely seen a soul, catching only glimpses of his eccentric landlord and a nervous young mother who has moved in next door.

Occasionally, fond memories return, of his family, his beloved wife June and their two children. But when two former colleagues turn up at his door with questions about a decades-old case, one which Tom never quite came to terms with, he finds himself pulled into the darkest currents of his past.

A beautiful, haunting novel, in which nothing is quite as it seems, Old God's Time is about what we live through, what we live with, and what may survive of us.

My first work by Sebastian Barry, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. While no doubt beautifully written, his style of writing was a little disarming to me at first, with his long rambling paragraphs containing a stream of... More
