Description
(Winner of the 2005 Hughes & Hughes Irish Novel of the Year) This brilliant historical thriller from the author of Zugzwang and The Catastrophist is set in 17th-century northern England, in the decade before the civil war. Governor John Brigge has stayed away from intrigues to work on his farm and be with his wife, now expecting their first child. Brigge is also—secretly—a Catholic, but he finds himself drawn into matters he wants to avoid when Katherine Shay, an Irishwoman, is accused of killing her baby. Brigge wants to wait for more evidence. The ascendant Puritan faction, however, demands her immediate hanging, and Brigge suspects their haste has little to do with justice. What are they hiding? And does he really want to know?

"Plunging us into a somber world of uncertainty, fears and portents, [Ronan] Bennett succeeds in making the vanished past vivid—and in making us wonder if there are not perhaps some parallels between that time and our own."—LATimes
