Between 1993 and 1998, eight women went missing from an area around Dublin that became known as the ‘Vanishing Triangle’. Was there a link? Speculation abounded. There were whispers of a serial killer, responsible for some, if not all, of these cases. But nobody was ever brought to justice.
Twenty years later, the brutal murder of Jastine Valdez disturbs crime novelist Claire McGowan into action.
Reminded, like many in Ireland, of those previous missing women, McGowan brought her skills as a novelist to the real world, setting out to uncover the truth of the vanishing triangle. As she dug deeper, she found something terrible lurking behind the idyllic image of rural Ireland and the 21st-century success story of the ‘Celtic Tiger'.
In this exclusive interview, Claire speaks with the girls about her brand new Audible Original: 'The Vanishing Triangle', and in which attempts to uncover new evidence and solve the many questions surrounding Ireland's Vanishing Triangle.
