Monday 26 - Friday 8 March 2007

Christine Falls

By John Banville, writing as Benjamin Black; abridged by Doreen Estall; read by Jim Norton.

When Quirke, a Dublin pathologist, discovers his brother-in-law has tampered with the file of a young woman who has been brought to the morgue (Christine Falls), he decides to delve further into the woman's life, but the investigation he decides to lead into the way she lived - and the reason she died - disturbs a dark secret that has been festering at the core of 1950s Dublin high Catholic society, a secret ready to destabilize the very heart and soul of Quirke's own family.
The previous seven days programmes can be listened to here.

Thanks for the link. It will be nice to have someone to read to me in bed and not tell when it's time to turn out the light.
