Sash has tried to leave the past behind her. But then she gets a phone call from Marcus, her childhood sweetheart. He's looking for her help to prove his innocence...

Sash Donnelly has done her best to move on - from Applegate, the small town where nothing ever seems out of the ordinary, and from that night, fifteen years ago.

Then it happens - the vicious murder that stuns Applegate's tight-knit community. And Sash receives a phone call from Marcus, her childhood sweetheart. He's facing a life behind bars and needs her to tell everyone the truth.

Lana, Sash's sister, knows that something happened that night, something that changed Sash, but she has no idea what. And she has a secret too, one that could save Marcus's life. Someone just needs to ask her the right question.

The 50 Francis Street Photographer

Suzanne Behan
Authors:
Suzanne Behan

From the 1950s to the 1990s, John Walsh ran his photography business out of a small shop on 50 Francis Street in inner city Dublin. For over forty years, he took thousands of photos on all aspects of Dublin life - funerals, communions, weddings, christening, concerts, and events. Here in this collection, for the first time ever, the images from the 50s and 60s are brought together with the words of his granddaughter Suzanne Behan to give us a unique and nostalgic look of an integral part of changing city. From religious processions and Dublin traditions, to when women drank in the snug and the 'good suit' came in and out of the pawn shop when needed, The 50 Francis Street Photographer is a collection of stunning, original photographs, a fascinating social history and celebration of people and places.
