FEATURED ON SIMON MAYO'S BBC RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB

Unintentional psychic Maud Drennan arrives to look after Cathal Flood, a belligerent man hiding in his filthy, cat-filled home.


Her job is simple: clear the rubbish, take care of the patient. But the once-grand house has more to reveal than simply its rooms. There is a secret here, and whether she likes it or not, Maud may be the one to finally uncover what has previously been kept hidden . . .

Note to readers: In the US, this book is published under the title Mr Flood's Last Resort
