"The Mystery of Mercy Close" by Marian Keyes sees the return of the beloved Walsh sisters in this utterly compelling, moving and very very funny novel.

'The Shovel List: a list of all the people and things I hate so much that I want to hit them in the face with a shovel.'

Courageous, vulnerable and wasp-tongued, Helen Walsh doesn't believe in fear - it's just a thing invented by men to get all the money and good jobs. And yet she's sinking. Her work as a private investigator has dried up, her flat has been repossessed and some old demons have resurfaced. Hired to track down boy-band member Wayne Diffney - vanished from his house in Mercy Close - she encounters hangers on, hasbeens and wannabes.
Despite playing by her own rules, Helen is drawn into a dark and glamorous world, where her worst enemy is her own head and where the only person she feels connected to is Wayne, a man she's never even met.

Praise for Marian Keyes: "Hilarious, painfully realistic...Your heart wrenches. Combines depth, drama and whip-smart comedy". ("Stylist").

"Keyes' satirical eye remains as sharp as ever". ("Daily Mail").

"Clever, hilarious, poignant". ("Sunday Times").

Marian Keyes' international bestselling novels include "Rachel's Holiday", "Last Chance Saloon", "Sushi for Beginners", "Angels", "The Other Side of the Story", "Anybody Out There", "This Charming Man" and "The Brightest Star in the Sky". Two collections of her journalism, "Under the Duvet" and "Further Under the Duvet", are also available from Penguin.

Helen Walsh doesn't believe in fear - it's just a thing invented by men to get all the money and good jobs - and yet she's sinking. Her work as a Private Investigator has dried up, her flat has been repossessed and now some old demons have resurfaced.

Marian Keyes, the No. 1 bestselling author of "Rachel's Holiday", is back with her stunning new novel "The Mystery of Mercy Close" and the return of the legendary and beloved Walsh sisters.

Helen Walsh doesn't believe in fear - it's just a thing invented by men to get all the money and good jobs - and yet she's sinking. Her work as a Private Investigator has dried up, her flat has been repossessed and now some old demons have resurfaced. Not least in the form of her charming but dodgy ex-boyfriend Jay Parker, who shows up with a missing persons case. Money is tight and Jay is awash with cash, so Helen is forced to take on the task of finding Wayne Diffney, the 'Wacky One' from boyband Laddz.
Things ended messily with Jay. And she's never going back there.
Besides she has a new boyfriend now, the very sexy detective Artie Devlin and it's all going well. But the reappearance of Jay is stirring up all kinds of stuff she thought she'd left behind. Playing by her own rules, Helen is drawn into a dark and glamorous world, where her worst enemy is her own head and where increasingly the only person she feels connected to is Wayne, a man she's never even met.

Utterly compelling, moving and very very funny, "The Mystery of Mercy Close" is unlike any novel you've ever read and Helen Walsh - courageous, vulnerable and wasp-tongued - is the perfect heroine for our times.

Praise for Marian Keyes:
"When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own". ("Daily Express").

"Zips along with engaging characters, fabulous plotting and spot-on dialogue. Marian Keyes: what a genius". ("Daily Mail").

Marian Keyes' international bestselling novels include "Rachel's Holiday", "Last Chance Saloon", "Sushi for Beginners", "Angels", "The Other Side of the Story", "Anybody Out There", "This Charming Man" and "The Brightest Star in the Sky".

Two collections of her journalism, "Under the Duvet" and "Further Under the Duvet", are also available from Penguin.
