It is a truism that some of the world’s best storytellers hail from Ireland. Yet another exhibit offered in support of that statement is DISAPPEARED by Anthony Quinn. For a debut novel, Quinn’s narrative is remarkably sure-footed from beginning to end. This is a quietly engaging work that intermittently peeks suddenly and violently into the dark corners of the human psyche.
"Quinn has crafted a smart and complex mystery that assumes the reader is possessed of a higher than average knowledge and memory of the Troubles, but rewards such with a memorable account of the effects of prior sins upon current events."
