A cold—and terrifying—Christmas holiday on the Inishowen Peninsula

December on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal—and solicitor Benedicta “Ben” O'Keeffe is working flat out before the Christmas holidays. While on a trip to Dublin to visit her parents, she runs into Luke Kirby—the man who killed her sister—freshly released from jail. On the surface he appears remorseful, conciliatory even, but his comment as she walks away makes her realize he is as evil as ever.

Back in Glendara, she finds chaos. The Oak pub has burned down and Carole Kearney, the Oak's barmaid, has gone missing. And then, while walking the dog up Sliabh Sneacht, Ben and her partner, Sergeant Tom Molloy, make a gruesome discovery: a body lying face down in the snow. Another brutal attack in the small town and Ben plunges into full discovery mode.

Who could be behind this vicious attack on Glendara and its residents? And why disturb such a charming town at Christmas? As Ben delves in to find answers, she comes face to face with the reality that all this evil could be swirling around her as her past confronts her present—and future.

Perfect for fans of character driven mysteries with a powerful sense of place

“An entourage of fascinating people and mysterious places lace this mystery with plenty of bark and bite. A captivating gem.” —Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author

“Haunting, atmospheric, and gripping. One of the finest Irish mystery debuts of recent years. Tana French has some serious competition.” —John Connolly, New York Times best-selling author

“[Treacherous Strand] . . . is hugely entertaining and satisfying, full of Irish legal tidbits and solidly drawn characters in a deliciously remote and picturesque locale. Ben is an intelligent and feisty woman you’d want in your corner. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal (Starred Review)

“Those seeking a contemporary puzzler in the Agatha Christie tradition will have fun.” —Publishers Weekly

“With Death at Whitewater Church, Andrea Carter announces herself as one of the most exciting new voices in Irish crime fiction. A wonderfully written debut, the rugged beauty of Donegal provides a stunningly realized backdrop to the twists and turns of Ben's investigations.” —Brian McGilloway, New York Times best-selling author

“A complex and suspenseful plot with unexpected twists, a brave but tormented heroine, and a shock ending.” —Booklist

“[The Well of Ice is] another riveting suspense thriller of a mystery from an accomplished master of the genre.” —Midwest Book Review

“Andrea Carter writes brilliantly about a lively, entirely credible community where even your friends are suspects and your neighbors may end up dead. Everyone has a secret, and the revelations come thick and fast. Riveting, intriguing, and worryingly real.” —Liz Nugent, award-winning author of Lying in Wait

“I adored this traditional crime novel; it’s modern-day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple.” —Irish Examiner
