Odran Yates enters Clonliffe Seminary in 1972 full of ambition and hope. Forty years later, he has seen friends stand trial, colleagues jailed and young lives destroyed, and he is forced to confront the demons that have raged within a once respected institution. Both courageous and intensely personal, this novel confirms Boyne's place as one of the most searching chroniclers of his generation.

An urgently compelling story of power, corruption, lies and self-deceits, the damage that happens when we turn our eyes from wrong. Anyone who wants to know what happened in the Irish Catholic Church needs to read this brave, righteously angry and stunning book. Some of us have long wondered what it would be like if a master storyteller turned his powers to this theme. Now we know. Joseph O'Connor
