A DANGEROUS WOMAN is Mary McGarry Morris’s second novel, the compelling story of Martha Horgan, whose life from the very beginning contain the seeds of a terrible tragedy.
’’From the beginning you know there will be a murder… you don’t know who will kill or be killed but the candidates are clear… a tour de force." The New Yorker
All her life, Martha Horgan has been either mocked or stunned, labelled abnormal by the fellow inhabitants of her small town world. When the teenage Martha is attacked in the woods, it is she, not her classmates, who ends up leaving school and taking the blame for what happened.
Desperate for affection, hating lies and hypocrisy, Martha’s life inevitably leads to a horrific tragedy and misunderstanding. But her compelling story is one of great love, inspiring hope and social comedy.
