Overview

After six years of mourning the murder of her husband, Kate Nolan is heartbroken when her sixteen-year-old son is arrested for dealing drugs. English Special-Forces Officer Neil Anderson offers her son a simple choice: he can go undercover as an informant or he can go to prison. And thus begins the descent of Kate’s family into a web of treachery, duplicity, betrayal and murder that reaches back to her husband’s very grave. Romantic love also becomes an area of conflict and confusion when the human heart strays from doctrine and tradition. “This provocative book is built around Baker’s personal experiences of Ireland,” Publisher’s Weekly writes, “which lend her story a sense of immediacy and authenticity.” Originally published under the title "Blood Roses."
