Twice winner of the Walter Scott Prize, Sebastian returns with his new novel, Old God’s Time. Set in the east of Ireland, it looks back on the life of retired policeman, Tom Kettle, as he settles into the quiet of a new home. But when two former colleagues turn up with questions about an old case, one that had troubled Tom, he finds himself pulled back into the darkness of the past. A fluent, beautifully made novel, lit by wonderful writing, Old God’s Time is about what we live through, what we live with and what, of us, might survive.
