DIGGING FOR PEAT in the mountain with his Uncle Tally, Fergus finds the body of a child, and it looks like she’s been murdered. As Fergus tries to make sense of the mad world around him—his brother on hunger-strike in prison, his growing feelings for Cora, his parents arguing over the Troubles, and him in it up to the neck, blackmailed into acting as courier to God knows what—a little voice comes to him in his dreams, and the mystery of the bog child unfurls.

Bog Child is an astonishing novel exploring the sacrifices made in the name of peace, and the unflinching strength of the human spirit.

From the Hardcover edition.

Baker & Taylor
After coming across the body of a young child who appears to have been murdered out in the bog, eighteen-year-old Fergus is compelled to put his own family dramas and personal difficulties aside in order to solve the mystery of a victim he doesn't even know in order to grant both of them the peace they are due. Book available.

& Taylor

In 1981, the height of Ireland's "Troubles," eighteen-year-old Fergus is distracted from his upcoming A-level exams by his imprisoned brother's hunger strike, the stress of being a courier for Sinn Fein, and dreams of a murdered girl whose body he discovered in a bog.

Amazing! The narrator does all these slightly different Irish/ English accents.
