Overview

When farmers cutting turf in an Irish peat bog make a grisly discovery - the perfectly intact body of a young woman with long red hair - archaeologist Cormac O'Callaghan and pathologist Nora Gavin are thrown together by their shared scientific interest in human remains. Because of the preservative effect of the bog, it is difficult to tell whether the body has lain there for two decades, two centuries, or two millennia.

Overview

When farmers cutting turf in an Irish peat bog make a grisly discovery - the perfectly intact body of a young woman with long red hair - archaeologist Cormac O'Callaghan and pathologist Nora Gavin are thrown together by their shared scientific interest in human remains. Because of the preservative effect of the bog, it is difficult to tell whether the body has lain there for two decades, two centuries, or two millennia. As they dig into the mystery of the red-haired girl, they are drawn into the two-year-old disappearance of a landowner's wife and young son. The story delves through the many layers of Ireland's turbulent past, tracing the still-visible footprints of fortified tower houses and ancient burial mounds, ever mindful of the eternal, subliminal connections between past and present.

    Well written Irish mystery

    This story will bring the reader to the heart of Ireland while luring them into a well-told tale of bog bodies, Irish history, and modern crime. Meeting Nora Gavin, American anatomist, Cormac MaGuire, archeologist, and Garret Devaney, as they work their ways through seperate mysteries is almost as good as being in the thick of things. The smell of peat smoke and the sound of Irish music are constantly with the reader as they make the journey through this eloquently written story. Jennifer McMahon does an outstanding job narrating this story and I recommend it to anyone wishing to listen to a highly satifying tale.

    A RICHLY TEXTURED READING

    The richly textured voice of John Keating embodies the sights and sounds of Ireland old and new in this engrossing debut thriller. Unusual items are often found by farmers cutting turf in peat bogs - perhaps an ancient cooking utensil or a shard of pottery. Nothing has ever turned up in this remote Galway spot that rivals the shocking discovery Brendan McGann made one serene spring morning: the head of a young woman with long red hair. Irish archaeologist Cormac Maguire and an American paleontologist, Nora Gavin, take on the daunting task of solving what appears to be a heinous crime. Compounding matters is the fact that peat bogs act as a preservative, hence the head could have been hidden there for two hundred or two years. More mystery clouds the issue: Mina Osborne and her young son went for a stroll two years ago and never returned. Wed to local landowner, Hugh Osborne, she was Indian born. Did she want to disappear with her child or did the landowner kill them as is whispered by some in the village? Shrouded in folkloric fancy and polished with Irish charm 'Haunted Ground' is a noteworthy first novel. Curl up with a pint of ale, and listen to this one!
