A brilliantly imaginative novel weaving the life of one of
Ireland’s most famous literary figures, WB Yeats, into an
evocative piece of historical crime fiction. Quinn forms an
excellent addition to a line of popular Irish crime writers
including Stuart Neville and Brian McGilloway

London at the dawn of 1918 and Ireland's famous literary figure, WB Yeats, is immersed in supernatural investigations at his Bloomsbury rooms.
Haunted by the restless spirit of an Irish girl whose body is mysteriously washed ashore in a coffin, Yeats undertakes a perilous journey back to Ireland with his apprentice ghost-catcher Charles Adams to piece together the killer's identity.
Surrounded by spies, occultists and diehard female rebels, the two are led on a gripping journey along Ireland's wild Atlantic coast, through the ruins of its abandoned estates, and into its darkest, most haunted corners.
Falling under the spell of dark forces, Yeats and his ghost-catcher come dangerously close to crossing the invisible line that divides the living from the dead.

Anthony Quinn joins a long list of outstanding contemporary Irish crime writers
including Stuart Neville, Brian McGilloway, Ken Bruen and John Connolly 

Anthony Quinn is an Irish writer and journalist whose first novel Disappeared was acclaimed by the Daily Mail ‘…it should make Quinn a star, for it is unquestionably one of the crime novels of the year, written in peerless prose’. It was shortlisted for a Strand Literary Award by the book critics of the Guardian, LA Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and other US newspapers. It was also listed by Kirkus Reviews as one of the top ten thrillers of 2012. His shortstories have twice been shortlisted for a Hennessy/New Irish Writing award.
The Blood-Dimmed Tide is the first in a series of three historical novels set in Ireland during WWI and the War of Independence. He lives in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

The Blood Dimmed Tide is published by No Exit Press and is available in paper back and ebook format...
