“This winning mystery stands on its own” (Booklist) — Emery’s eighth novel now in trade paper

It’s 1989. The Troubles are raging in Ireland, bombs exploding in England. In this prequel to the Collins-Burke series, Father Brennan Burke is home in New York when news of his sister’s arrest in London sends him flying across the ocean. The family troubles deepen when Brennan’s cousin Conn is charged with the murder of a Special Branch detective and suspected in a terrorist plot against Westminster Abbey. The Burkes come under surveillance by the murdered cop’s partner and are caught in a tangle of buried family memories.

From the bullet-riddled bars of Belfast to an elegant English estate, Ruined Abbey combines a whodunit with a war story, love story, and historical novel, while exploring the eternal question: what is fair in love and war? It all starts with a ruined abbey.

Named “one of Canada’s finest novelists” (Ottawa Review of Books), Anne Emery is a lawyer and the author of the Collins-Burke mystery series. She has won an Arthur Ellis Award, an Independent Publisher Book Awards silver medal, and a Dartmouth Book Award. She lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

  • Ruined Abbey is so far the bestselling volume of the series.
  • As the Globe and Mail noted: “Halifax lawyer Anne Emery’s terrific
    series featuring lawyer Monty Collins and priest Brennan Burke gets better with every book.”
  • While much of the series is set in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this book has more international appeal, with Burke travelling to Ireland.
