Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards Winner

3 January 2017

We're pleased to announce that two Ulverscroft titles won awards at the recent Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards.

The Trespasser by Tana French - Winner Of The Books Are My Bag Crime Fiction Book Of The Year
Antoinette Conway is still on the Murder squad, but only just. She's partnered up with Stephen Moran now, and that's going well - but the rest of her working life isn't. Antoinette doesn't play well with others, and there's a vicious running campaign in the squad to get rid of her. She and Stephen pull a case that at first looks like a slam-dunk lovers' tiff, but gradually they realise there's more going on: someone on their own squad is trying to push them towards the obvious solution, away from nagging questions. They have to work out whether this is just an escalation in the drive to get rid of her - or whether there's something deeper and darker going on.

This title will be available as a CD, MP3CD and uLIBRARY download from March 2017.

Holding by Graham Norton - Winner Of The Irish Independent Popular Fiction Book Of The Year
The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama, and yet its inhabitants are troubled. Sergeant PJ Collins hasn't always been this overweight; mother of two Brid Riordan hasn't always been an alcoholic; and elegant Evelyn Ross hasn't always felt that her life was a total waste. So when human remains are discovered on an old farm, suspected to be those of Tommy Burke - a former love of both Brid and Evelyn - the village's dark past begins to unravel. As the frustrated PJ struggles to solve a genuine case for the first time in his life, he unearths a community's worth of anger and resentment, secrets and regret.

This title will be available in large print from July 2017.
