Hand In The Till
With a family like this, who wouldn’t need absinthe? Fionnuala Flood, mother of seven unruly thugs, takes stock of her life on her 45th birthday, and it couldn’t be more of a misery. She’s been fired from the corner shop for stealing, her two oldest sons are in prison, her husband’s hands are fondling more than frozen fish at the packing plant, and her lesbian daughter has just published a book exposing the family’s attempts to get their claws into Auntie Ursula Barnett’s lottery winnings the year before.
When teenager Heather Young disappeared from the small town of Himmel, Wisconsin everyone believed her boyfriend had killed her—though her body was never found. Twenty years later, his little sister Sammy returns to town. She begs her old friend, true crime writer Leah Nash, to prove her brother Eric isn’t a murderer.
