The Long Drop by Denise Mina. Published by Little, Brown

Based on an actual case in 1950’s Ireland, Mina imagines what may have gone on behind the scenes. A house full of dead women, their father suspected of their murders. William Watt swears he had nothing to do with the killings and offers to pay anyone who can exonerate him. There follows a meeting with criminal Peter Manual who seems to have information about the murder no one should be privy to…unless they were there. When the trial takes place, it’s Peter defending himself against the murder charges, not William. What did the two men discuss during their meeting and is there a high enough price for murder?
