But Moerk manages nicely in his first novel, which opens with gruesome death. An affable mail carrier in a small Irish village grows uneasy enough about the occupant of one of the houses on his route to venture inside. His discovery of the dead home owner is only the beginning; when garda officers arrive, they find the corpses of two emaciated young women, obviously held captive in the home.
Darling Jim. A Novel. Darling Jim is wickedly good. From its shocking beginning to the unwinding stories of three sisters, the tale spirals like a Celtic knot, wending back into authentic Irish folklore and forward into the modern world where storytellers have a dangerous charm. A page-turner of the highest sort. Keith Donohue, author of The Stolen Child. A dark, seductive fairy tale of a book. Christian Moerk is a thrilling storyteller. Gillian Flynn, author of Sharp Objects. Darling Jim is a delicious, dangerous and very original story within a story, exactly what I love to read.
Originally published by Politikens Forlag, Denmark in 2007"-T. When two sisters and their aunt are found dead in their suburban Dublin home, it seems that the secret behind their untimely demise will never be known.

The widely acclaimed debut novel―about three sisters, three tales, and a very dark secret―that's a "chilling bedtime story for adults."―People (three stars)
Fiona Walsh thought her family's secrets would follow her to her grave, but when her diary is found by a young postman, Niall, the truth about her untimely demise―and that of her sister and aunt―begins to see the light of day. It's the most tragic love story he's ever heard.
Niall soon becomes enveloped by the mystery surrounding Jim―an itinerant storyteller who traveled through Ireland enrapturing audiences and wooing women with his macabre mythic sagas―though a trail of murder followed him wherever he went. The Walsh sisters, fiercely loyal to each other, were not immune to "darling" Jim's powers of seduction, but found themselves in harm's way when they began to uncover his treacherous past. Niall must now continue his dangerous hunt for the truth―and for the vanished third sister―while there's still time.
And in the woods, the wolves from Jim's stories begin to gather.
