Mystery in a small Irish town
Any additional comments?
A very enjoyable mix of mystery and small town life in Donegal with a delightful main character, "Ben" O'Keefe, a local solicitor who is more accustomed to property conveyancing than crime investigation but she cannot help herself from becoming involved in events which had their origin in the troubled past. I hope that we will hear more of her and Tom Molloy, a member of the local Garda. The narration by Melanie McHugh was an added bonus

Thrilled to bits with this series set in Inishowen
I love that this series is set in my home area, the Inishowen Peninsula. The author does a great job of describing the landscape, the small town communities and I really enjoyed the fact that the characters all sounded like they were from Inishowen by the expressions they used. It shows how familiar the author is with the area and its people. However, I felt that the narration was a little heavy on the use of 'cyar' for car as it's not really a pronunciation I hear very often.
A clever and complex mystery with surprising twists and turns. The character development in the story is excellent. I liked Ben. She is a smart young solicitor but haunted by her own tragic past. I liked the her friendship with Garda Molloy and I look forward to reading how things progress with them.
This is a series that I will definitely continue with. And I hope there will be many more adventures for Ben and Molloy to come.
