I found this book quite unsettling and disturbing as well as, I’m afraid, quite dull. Set in an Irish stately home during the 1950s a policeman is called in to investigate after a priest is found dead at the bottom of the stairs. Did he fall or was he pushed?
I thought the characters were quite caricatured and the blasé talk of child abuse was really unpleasant and sickening.
I didn’t enjoy it at all.
