Murder at Roaringwater is described as the “inside story” of the final days of young Frenchwoman, Sophie Toscan du Plantier. This is a violent, unresolved murder, where the victim seemed to have a premonition of her own terrible end.

For six years, Nick Foster “pieced together” the life and death of Sophie, who was brutally killed outside her cottage in rural West Cork in 1996. He also developed an ongoing “friendship’ with the Englishman long-suspected of her murder, Ian Bailey.

This story is as fascinating as it is tragic. It follows Nick in Paris and Ireland during his “dedicated investigation” into the circumstances surrounding Sophie’s murder, his quest to reveal her killer and efforts to understand what the motive could have been for such a terrible crime.
