Nurse Cadden

Everyone living in mid-century Dublin knows Mamie Cadden — she’s the boorish woman who motors around the city in her bright red sports car.

When the body of pregnant Helen O’Reilly is found dumped outside of Mamie’s flat, the infamous nurse is sentenced to hang. Can a Divine intervention save Nurse Cadden’s soul before it’s too late?
