There’s Something I Have to Tell You

By Michelle McDonagh

Journalist Michelle McDonagh has struck gold with her debut novel, which is among the most addictive page-turning whodunnits you’re likely to encounter this year. When Jimmy and Ursula Kennedy’s bodies are pulled from the slurry pit on the family farm in January 2018, it’s initially seen as a tragic accident. But the more we learn about the Kennedys, and Ursula’s heinous behaviour towards her own family, the more we and the gardaí start to suspect that there may be more to their deaths than meets the eye. McDonagh delights in ramping up the tension, teasing the reader with clues to the truth, in this compulsive slice of rural noir where nearly every character has something to hide. JW
