The Desire Line by Jane Cassidy


Home is where the heart is but what if that home has been erased?

Discharged from a psychiatric ward after an apparent murder-suicide perpetrated by her partner Malachy, feared drowned, Helena is driven to the beautiful peninsula of Islandmagee, north of Belfast, by new friends Jer and Nora McCabe. There she finds the house she shared with Malachy has been cleared off the face of the earth . . . or so she claims.

Maverick TV producer and investigative journalist Jer wonders whether Helena is victim or villain, but tries to help for the sake of his vulnerable wife who has befriended this unsettling woman.

Amid echoes of the infamous Islandmagee witch trial, Jer and his family are drawn into a disturbing chain of events which reach their climax on an Islandmagee hillside on Halloween night.

Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, Sophie Hannah and Ruth Rendell, The Desire Line will be sure to place Jane Cassidy up there with your favourite authors.
