Deadly Intent

Deadly Intent is a gripping and contemporary story of tangled relationships and ugly secrets, set on Ireland’s spectacular Atlantic coastline.

Maureen lies unconscious on a lonely track. Accusations swirl among her fellow holidaymakers on Ireland’s enchanting Beara peninsula. Two days later, a man’s body is found, strangled and dumped. Amid a frenzy of police, media and family pressures, Nessa McDermott - former journalist turned guesthouse owner - has to find her own answers. Ambitious young cop Redmond Joyce is also hellbent on identifying the murderer, and conflict between them grows as they both risk everything they care about to uncover the horrifying truth.

Hóng

Hóng, winner of the 2013 CBI Judges' Special Award, is an adventure story for young readers. As the judges said: 'The style of language allows the reader to engage sympathetically with the story of contemporary Irish speaking teenagers in an English speaking world of computer games and environmental recklessness.’

Is cluiche iontach é Hóng, a imríonn Evan ar a ríomhaire an t-am ar fad. Ach tá Yin, imreoir eile, ag impí air cabhrú léi. Cé hí Yin agus cén fáth go bhfuil eagla uirthi - ní istigh sa chluiche ach sa saol mór? Conas a chuirfidh Evan, a chara Rio, agus a dheirfiúr Síofra, stop le gnó salach in Éirinn agus sa tSín?
