When the body of a badly scarred Irish national turns up in a wealthy Long Island beach community, homicide detective Maggie D'arcy once again teams up with Garda detectives in Ireland to solve the case. Traveling to a quiet village in rural County Clare, Maggie solicits help from humanitarian aid workers. And in this sequel to The Mountains Wild, what Maggie learns leads her back to her home turf and into range of a dangerous and determined killer who will do anything to keep the victim's story hidden forever.
