It had been three hours since Tadhg and Mario had watched them lower Danny's coffin into the ground, thirty-one hours since they heard the news...

When Danny Doherty and his mother moved from Country Tyrone to a small town south town south of the border, tongues started to wag. Their reluctance to talk about themselves or to engage with locals only helped to alienate them further.

Danny and his best friends, Tadgh and Mario, had been inseparable, and Danny had trusted them with some shocking secrets from his past. But soon his friends are left to wonder if they had ever known him at all...

A moving, perceptive story about the nature of secrets, families and grief.
