Compelling, layered story: A central trap hangs over Kathleen MacMahon’s latest novel

There are two main stories at the heart of Kathleen MacMahon's third novel, Nothing But Blue Sky.

One naturally muscles its way to centre stage: that of David Dowling, a television journalist whose life is torn apart when his wife, Mary Rose, is killed in a plane accident. The message here is that things can come from leftfield. Life can be business as usual and then that one-in-a-million thing can happen, and the world can capsize around you. (Don't we know it, cries the pandemic-stricken reader.)
