We’re excited to reveal the chilling cover of An Inquiry Into Innocence by R. N. Cogley!
Having already served seven years for a crime Eli Kelly can’t remember committing, a solicitor agrees to take on his appeal. Securing the services of a psychologist to delve deep into Eli’s mind to unlock his memories, will his innocence be proven, or is he a guilty man who deserves to be behind bars?
Published on 23rd January 2024, An Inquiry into Innocence weaves both the author’s interest in the prevalence of mental illness within the Irish prison system and his keenness to raise awareness of domestic abuse between gay couples together, in a novel that piques readers’ curiosity from the outset.
Skilfully putting the psychologist in his narrative centre stage, as they attempt to unlock the memories that will determine the protagonist’s guilt or innocence, this new novel ticks all the boxes as a page turning and entertaining read, whilst leaving readers much to ponder on issues that may not have, until now, hit their radar.
With an inquiring mind and passion for forensically researching the issues he brings into his storytelling, R.N. Cogley is a young novelist who will find favour with all those who enjoy in-depth novels that bring real-world issues to the fore in a heart-wrenchingly personal way.
