Path into Darkness

(The third book in the County Clare Mystery series)
A novel by


"Lisa Alber's mysteries are atmospheric-brooding, complex, and featuring enough twists and turns to keep you guessing."
Lori Rader-Day

A haunting tale of family secrets, madness, and healing in small-town Ireland

Lisfenora is known across the British Isles for its yearly matchmaking festival. But a local man's murder and the grim discovery in his home have cast a somber mood over the town. Detective Sergeant Danny Ahern tries to make sense of the chaotic scene while struggling to set aside moral conflicts and grief for his comatose wife. Within days, he's plunged into even darker terrain when the investigation leads him on a collision course with the Tate family: troubled Nathan, who conceals secrets within ghastly secrets, and beautiful Zoe, the daughter he abandoned years ago.

As darkness asserts its grip on Nathan, propelling him toward a tragic downfall, Danny finds himself traveling down his own dark path between life and death.


"A dark, compelling mystery with numerous plot twists and well-drawn characters interwoven with an involving portrait of life in a small insular Irish village." - Booklist

"Lyrical, tense, and haunting, Lisa Alber's Path into Darkness returns to the Irish village . . . Rich in atmosphere and foreboding, the story propels the reader to a conclusion that is heartbreaking, human, and hopeful." - Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author of Garden of Lamentations

"Gloriously detonating the 'shamrocks and leprechauns' take on Ireland, Lisa Alber's County Clare series always offers both psychological-nuanced character studies and satisfying mysteries. But Path into Darkness steps it up a notch. Each strand in this terrific novel is absorbing enough to carry books on its own, yet Alber effortlessly weaves them into a breathtaking ensemble. This is the work of a master-plotter. And a master heart breaker too." - Catriona McPherson, Agatha Award-winning author of The Reek of Red Herrings
