What you need to know before your trail

In the exclusive gated community of Withered Vale, people’s lives appear as perfect as their beautifully manicured lawns. Money, success, privilege – the residents have it all. Life is good.

There’s just one problem.

Olive Collins’ dead body has been rotting inside number four for the last three months. Her neighbours say they’re shocked at the discovery but nobody thought to check on her when she vanished from sight.

The police start to ask questions and the seemingly flawless facade begins to crack. Because, when it comes to Olive’s neighbours, it seems each of them has something to hide, something to lose and everything to gain from her death.

Travel Guide

County Wicklow

County Wicklow

The exclusive gated community of Withered Vale

A fictional setting and streets you’ll be pleased to know as you would not want to be anywhere near some of the residents of this street. Marwood, a village close to  our sheltered community in the novel is also luckily fictional as you’d never want to find any of these people in real life..

It might be wealthy and gated but a community who lives behind gates and set off from the rest of the world in many ways can also be viewed as a prison and the individual houses, mere prison cells…

Who is watching who? Who is watching you? And what do you think about your neighbours…for they all have their sordid secrets to reveal….

“The body of a woman found in her home yesterday may have been in situ for almost three months, according to a police spokesperson.

The gruesome discovery was made after a resident in the wealthy gated community where the woman lived contacted the emergency services citing concerns about her neighbours property.

The woman’s home is situated in a quiet residential area just outside the village of Marwood in Wicklow.”
