Quirke (we never get to know his Christian name) is the chief pathologist in the Dublin city morgue â€“ a charismatic loner whose job takes him into unexpected places as he uncovers the secrets of sudden death in 1950s Dublin. Itâ€™s a rich and smouldering world along whose smoky streets and damp alleys Quirke goes from bars that glimmer with peat fires and whiskey to elegant Dublin houses brimming with sexual tension. Itâ€™s a time full of mystery, secrets and intrigue.
