Read what people are saying, below.
‘A hugely compelling story of loss, grief and vengeance, The Empty Room is probably the best novel yet by one of our finest mystery writers. Unmissable.’ John Connolly
‘Masterful, humane, compelling, authentic, page-turning, beautifully written, utterly convincing: without a wasted word, The Empty Room chronicles the emotional fallout and tragic consequences of the disappearance of Ellie Condron from the point of view of her heartbroken mother Dora’. Catherine Kirwan
‘A searing, thrilling and heart-breaking look at life, loss and revenge, expertly handled by a hugely talented storyteller.’ Chris Whitaker
'The Empty Room is a tense, and at times claustrophobic, slow-burner which builds to a devastating conclusion. Dora Condron is a truly unforgettable character, written with great emotional depth and insight. Her pain is raw on the page - and the mother/daughter bond, warts and all, is captured beautifully. This is a book where hope sits with the reader throughout, and having finished it I know it will continue to play on my mind.
Another winner.’ Claire Allan
‘A compulsive, addictive, heart rending read, The Empty Room is a tale of grief and loss, and ultimately redemption, that puts Brian McGilloway at the very top of the game. I could not put it down.’ Sam Blake
‘I loved The Empty Room. The characterisation is excellent and the pace is fantastic. I kept telling myself, just one more chapter, but then I was into the next one before I even knew it. The tension and heartbreak kept me turning the pages.’ Patricia Gibney
‘I didn’t want it to end, yet couldn’t tear myself away from the pages, such was the pull of the story. It’s been a couple of weeks since I finished it, and I find myself thinking about the characters regularly. An exceptional read!’ Chris McDonald
‘The Empty Room has all the elements of great drama – murder, revenge, sacrifice – along with complex moral questions that will keep you engaged long after the final thrilling page’ Martina Murphy
