Three middle-aged sisters and their elderly aunt decide to starve themselves to death, barricading themselves in a suburban house to face their slow painful end.
Dead Right reveals that the women’s commitment to their religious faith, to family and to love led to a course of action they felt to be right but that ultimately left three of them dead and one at death’s door.
The novel explores the complex relationships between these women, their fears and motivations and how the men in their lives – the domineering father; the weak, immature brother and the abusive, unfaithful husband – alienated and motivated them, inspiring and moulding their plans. Their story unfolds against the turbulent events in Northern Ireland and the wider world in the early 2000’s.
Critical to understanding these horrific events is the survivor, one of the sisters and the only person who knows the truth about what happened inside the house. Can she be trusted as a reliable witness?
