A novel by

 
 
NO CRIME IS EVER TRULY BURIED...

Visceral, gritty and cinematic, Even the Dead is the latest stylish thriller from John Banville's crime-writing alter ego, Benjamin Black.

Pathologist Quirke works in the city morgue, watching over Dublin's dead. The latest to join their ghostly ranks is a suicide. But something doesn't add up. The victim has a suspicious head wound, and the only witness has vanished, every trace of her wiped away.

On the trail of the missing woman, Quirke finds himself drawn into the shadowy world of Dublin's elite - secret societies, High Church politics and corrupt politicians. It leads him to a long-buried conspiracy that involves his own family. But it's too late to go back now...

THE DEAD WILL BE HEARD

Perfect for fans of intelligent detective fiction, like Robert Galbraith's Cormoran Strike novels and Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford mysteries.
