‘None of us involved in this are safe, do you realise that? I don’t feel safe. Since I stepped off the fuckin’ plane in Cork last night, I haven’t felt safe.’

Noelie Sullivan, disaffected ex-punk and grassroots activist, has every reason to be afraid. His investigation into Danesfort Industrial School and the boys who went missing from it is attracting attention. Special Branch want him to disappear and he’s made enemies of the powerful Walsh and Donnelly families.

But Noelie is determined to get to the truth. He won’t walk away. At least that’s what he tells himself until his friends and family start paying the price.

A River of Bodies is the gripping sequel to To Keep A Bird Singing and the second part of Kevin Doyle’s Solidarity Books trilogy.
