The Trout

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
From the award-winning author of The Sea and the Silence comes "a superbly crafted psychological thriller" of a man searching for his own secret past (Dermot Bolger, author of An Ark of Light).

Writer Alex Smith was born in Ireland, but after making a life with his wife in rural Canada, he has little connection to the old country. Then he opens the mail and is shocked to see a trout fishing fly - a sight that awakens dark and disturbing memory. The image of himself killing a man grows so strong it threatens both his marriage and his stability.

Determined to find out what this new recollection means, Alex returns alone to Ireland, where he must search for answers and confront his bitterly estranged father. But as he desperately wades through the murky waters of his past, more devastating revelations from his childhood come to the surface - and soon Alex finds himself caught in a mystery of shame, anger and betrayal that has haunted him for far too long . . .

A novel of great literary beauty and tense psychological suspense, The Trout is "a well-crafted, crisply written, gripping story" of predators and prey, deception, and the hidden crimes that can shape a life (Irish Times).
