Don’t miss this heart-racing conversation with three of Ireland’s most prominent voices and your chance to ask them your deepest and darkest questions.
In Ryan’s Run Time, struggling soap-actress Adele Rafferty is ready to give up on her dreams when she gets a last-minute offer to play the lead in an upcoming horror film. But when real life on set starts to somehow mirror the sinister events portrayed in the script, Adele fears the real horror lies off the page.
Allan’s In The Dark tells the story of Nora Logue who has done her best to rebuild her life after losing her daughter, Daisy, under mysterious circumstances. But when the opportunity arises to learn what really happened, Nora must choose whether the pursuit of truth is worth endangering her family for.
The Close, Casey’s latest Maeve Kerrigan novel, shines a light into the darkest shadows of suburbia. At first glance, Jellicoe Close seems to be a perfect suburban street; but there are dark secrets behind the neat front doors, and hidden dangers around every perfectly manicured corner.
