Synopsis

The explosive literary sensation: a mother faces a terrible choice as Ireland slides into totalitarianism On a dark, wet evening in Dublin, scientist and mother-of-four Eilish Stack answers her front door to find the GNSB on her step. Two officers from Ireland’s newly formed secret police are here to interrogate her husband, a trade unionist.

Ireland is falling apart. The country is in the grip of a government turning towards tyranny and when her husband disappears, Eilish finds herself caught within the nightmare logic of a society that is quickly unravelling. How far will she go to save her family? And what – or who – is she willing to leave behind?Exhilarating, terrifying and propulsive, Prophet Song is a work of breathtaking originality, offering a devastating vision of a country at war and a deeply human portrait of a mother’s fight to hold her family together.

‘IF THERE WAS EVER A CRUCIAL BOOK FOR OUR CURRENT TIMES, IT’S PAUL LYNCH’S PROPHET SONG… BRILLIANTLY HAUNTING.’ OBSERVER

‘A compassionate, propulsive and timely novel that forces the reader to imagine – what if this was me?’ FT
