Default To Keep A Bird Singing

To Keep A Bird Singing is a crime thriller set in Cork in 2010 as austerity bites. Published in May by Blackstaff Press it has been variously described as "a page turner", a "socialist whodunnit" and "Cork noir".

" An unemployed former punk living on Douglas Street, Sullivan is browsing a second-hand shop when he stumbles upon his old record collection, which had been stolen at the height of an earlier recession, in the 1980s. Repurchasing the collection, Sullivan discovers an intriguing clue inside an album cover, leading him down a trail of murder and corruption that leaves none of Cork’s elite untainted."

from Scratching At Cork's Underbelly by Ellie O'Byrne/ Irish Examiner
