Suspicion soon falls on one of Jewell's biggest rivals. But as Quirke and his assistant Sinclair get to know Jewell's beautiful, enigmatic wife Françoise d'Aubigny, and his fragile sister Dannie, as well as those who work for the family, it gradually becomes clear that all is not as it seems... Against the backdrop of 1950's Dublin, Benjamin Black conjures another atmospheric, beguiling mystery.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
A superb story spoiled by dreadful narration
What did you like best about this story?
Characters are well rounded and the setting, in the 1950s, well evoked
What didn’t you like about John Keating’s performance?
He seemed to be reading a line at a time and therefore pausing in inapposite places. I shall not purchase any further books read by him.
Do you think A Death in Summer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, Quirke is a character with lots to give.
Any additional comments?
I shall acquire the remaining Quirke books either as Kindle books or in paper. A pitdy, because with a better narrator, the book could have been great.
