Julie Parsons is back!

I was just getting ready to compose a blog post for Part II of “Where are they now?” since the author in question hasn’t had a book out since 2007.  But… low and behold, I read in a blogger news feed that she has a new book out!  Yipee!

Julie Parsons

Julie Parsons was born in New Zealand and has lived most of her adult life in Ireland. She has had a varied career – artist’s model, typesetter, freelance journalist, radio and television producer – before returning to write fiction. Julie lives outside Dublin, by the sea, with her family.

Her novels are ones I remember as favourites!

and now I hear she has a new novel just published by New Island Books!

ISBN: 9781848405776  Pages: 350

A powerful, compelling, and darkly chilling novel of violence, shame and deceit.

On Sundays peace was restored. He would lie down, dream and remember. He would enjoy. And later on the bell would ring. He would get up and walk downstairs. He would open the front door. And his life would come to an end . . .

Garda Inspector Michael McLoughlin is trying to enjoy his retirement – doing a bit of PI work on the side, meeting up with former colleagues, fixing up a grand old house in a genteel Dublin suburb near the sea.

Then he discovers the body of his neighbour, a retired judge – brutally murdered, shot through the back of the neck, his face mutilated beyond recognition. McLoughlin finds himself drawn into the murky past of the murdered judge, which leads him back to his own father’s killing, decades earlier, by the IRA.

In seeking the truth behind both crimes, a web of deceit, blackmail and fragile reputations comes to light, as McLoughlin’s investigation reveals the explosive circumstances linking both crimes – and dark secrets are discovered which would destroy the judge’s legendary family name.


The Therapy House” can be purchased now in Kindle format!

      Since she has not had a book out in 10 years I can only guess that they are waiting to see how it will sell. Just surmising…
