Praise for The Mountains Wild

“This mystery, evocative of the Irish diaspora, interrogates both a young woman’s disappearance and the meaning of homeland.” ― Kirkus Reviews

“Taylor’s affection for Irish geography, history, and culture suffuses the tale, adding texture and atmosphere. Fans of Elizabeth George should take note.” ― Publishers Weekly

"Sarah Stewart Taylor has written a beautiful, bittersweet novel about loyalty and loss and how they can blind us to the truth." ― Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Layers of Dublin details will ensnare biblio-travelers, and this series starter offers a compelling introduction to Maggie D’arcy as she faces her life’s mystery . . . Taylor, a mystery veteran, shifts into noirish territory after her humorous Sweeney St. George series, and it works just fine.” ― Booklist

"The Mountains Wild makes for perfect summer reading. Maggie is a first-class protagonist―an ace investigator and appealing everywoman with smarts and heart. Suspense fans are sure to welcome her to the crime scene." ― BookPage

A Distant Grave 

Coming in June, 2021! 

In the follow up to the critically acclaimed The Mountains Wild, Detective Maggie D'arcy tackles another intricate case that bridges Long Island and Ireland.

Long Island homicide detective Maggie D'arcy and her teenage daughter, Lilly, are still recovering from the events of last fall when a strange new case demands Maggie's attention. The body of an unidentified Irish national turns up in a wealthy Long Island beach community and with little to go on but the scars on his back, Maggie once again teams up with Garda detectives in Ireland to find out who the man was and what he was doing on Long Island. As the strands of the mystery lead Maggie to a quiet village in rural County Clare and back to her home turf, they also lead her in range of a dangerous and determined killer who will do anything to keep the victim's story hidden forever.

With the lyrical prose, deeply drawn characters, and atmospheric setting that made The Mountains Wild one of 2020's most anticipated summer reads, Sarah Stewart Taylor's A Distant Grave delivers another gripping mystery novel about family, survival, and the meaning of home.
