This is a dark, noir novel with a plethora of ominous characters lurking in the shadows of 1960s Ireland, and causing a young American hitch-hiking girl to become panicked trying to figure out what these obviously dangerous people want from her. She is relentlessly pursued, and the tension literally crackles from the pages as she's subjected to bone-chilling horrors. Great characters and pace, while the beauty and serenity of the Irish seaside community provides a counterbalance to the evil. Highly recommended!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher of this book for an advance copy in return for an honest review. A wonderful read set in 1967 Ireland during the "Summer of Love". For young, blonde female hitchhikers it's dangerous as one after the other they are brutally beaten and assaulted. While there is violence in the novel it is not graphic or offensive. The story weaves the beauty of Ireland with family, happiness and joy at rediscovering ones roots. There are 3 main themes: the first is of course the serial attacker roaming the beaches of Tralee, the second is the budding romance of a Guarda and a barmaid, the third is Dakota Lacey tracking down the people that her grandfather told her about and wanted her to look up when she reached Ireland. There is a touch of Irish magic at the end of the story, a surprising twist as to who the dark, hooded men really are.
