A woman's body washes up on a remote beach on the Inishowen peninsula. Partially clothed, with a strange tattoo on her thigh, she is identified as Marguerite Etienne, a French woman who has been living in the area. Solicitor Benedicta 'Ben' O'Keeffe is consumed by guilt; Marguerite was her client. Disturbed by what appears to be chilling local indifference to the death, Ben uncovers the woman's strange past as a member of a French doomsday cult, which she escaped twenty years previously, leaving her baby daughter behind. As Ben pieces together the last few weeks of Marguerite's life in Inishowen, what she discovers causes her to question the fragile nature of her own position in the area, and she finds herself crossing boundaries both personal and professional to unearth local secrets long buried.

I would put this in the 'good read for a lazy day'. I enjoyed the characters and the setting. I do wish that writers of this type of book would stop putting so much violence in their writing. This book did not need it, it was well written enough and the plot was strong, it just didn't need the level of violence. Maybe I am just getting old, and Agatha Christie had it right to down play the violence.
