A special celebratory edition to mark the 21st birthday of Vintage books.
In the bitter winter of 1847, The Star of the Sea sets sail from Ireland for New York. Amongst the passengers are a maidservant with a devastating secret, bankrupt Lord Merridith and his family, an aspiring novelist and a maker of revolutionary ballads. All in search of a new home in the Promised land, each is yet connected more deeply than they can possibly know... and a camouflaged killer is stalking the decks, hungry for vengeance and absolution.
“A page-turner of a masterpiece. Don't miss it”
“A triumph...A spectacular breakthrough...it raises the bar for contemporary Irish fiction”
“A terrific story...A stealthily gripping narrative”
