Waterstones Says

Darkly evocative and fuelled by Banville’s wintry wit, Snow explores the religious tensions in mid-twentieth century Ireland through a masterfully nuanced take on a classic whodunit.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for November 2021

Shortlisted for the CWA Sapere Books Historical Dagger 2021

'The body is in the library,' Colonel Osborne said. 'Come this way.'

Following the discovery of the corpse of a highly respected parish priest at Ballyglass House - the Co. Wexford family seat of the aristocratic, secretive Osborne family - Detective Inspector St John Strafford is called in from Dublin to investigate.

Strafford faces obstruction from all angles, but carries on determinedly in his pursuit of the murderer. However, as the snow continues to fall over this ever-expanding mystery, the people of Ballyglass are equally determined to keep their secrets.
