Book Blurb: On Ireland’s Beara Peninsula incessant rain washes out a dead body. Its discovery leads to a far more gruesome buried bones and skeletons of numerous children. The Irish Police are shocked and baffled.
The family of the dead man is shrouded in mysterious silence. They only want to testify to Anna Schwarz, a lawyer from Berlin. But Anna has sworn never to set foot on the green Island again.

Review: I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Reviewing this story is hard as I don't want to give any spoilers, so I will keep it a bit shallow.

A True crime story mixed with fiction, I was stuck to the pages. The suspense and twists (although I saw most coming) were nicely worked out. There were enough moments for me to hold my breath to see what was coming. I finished the book in a day as I flew through, which is a very good thing. Murder, cult, investigation, it was all there. Ariana actually did her research as the professional language was amazing.

I wish I had known this book was part of a series as you want to know more about what happened between the main characters. As a stand-alone, I would have liked a little more character development. As a former forensic consultant, I was a bit triggered by the children and I can understand that for some this book may be too much as it is very dark.

Overall I loved the book, it was written very well and I would like to read the books before in this series, to see what the character development is in them. I would advise to read the whole series before starting with this book, but it definitely is a must-read.
