Tom Kettle, a retired policeman, and widower, is settling into the quiet of his new home in Dalkey, overlooking the sea.

His solitude is interrupted when two former colleagues turn up at his door to ask about a traumatic, decades-old case. A case that Tom never quite came to terms with. And his peace is further disturbed when his new neighbour, a mysterious young mother, asks for his help.

A beautiful, haunting novel, in which nothing is quite as it seems, 
Old God's Time is an unforgettable exploration of family, loss and love.

'A wonderful, brutal, utterly compelling book . . . Barry is the most miraculous writer.' Russell T Davies
'To borrow a word that recurs in its pages, it is stupendous, in the sense that it shocks and astonishes.'
