Publisher's Summary

One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a bundle of rags floating in the Blackwater River. It is the bloated body of Father Heaney. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the marks of garrotting wire. Worse still, he has been castrated.
When a second priest is found murdered, his body bruised and beaten and the same savage wound hidden beneath his soutane, Detective Inspector Katie Maguire finds evidence of a sinister cover-up at St Joseph's Orphanage. But the Catholic diocese still wields considerable power here, and the Garda are under pressure to close the case.
Katie has to work alone if she is to catch the killer in time - but first she must shatter a wall of silence that for decades has hidden a terrible secret. A secret that is beyond belief...

Kate Maguire Book 1. This is a fascinating seriesand one feels one is there


Have you listened to any of Caroline Lennon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No. Her performance was excellent and her ability to separate the charaters was great.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last few words


Any additional comments?

At times I thought I must have strayed into an Edgar Alan Poe story- it was so terrifying but one had to listen all the way through. It is so topical and one finds that one believes it has happened in real life

What they took could not be returned.


The Catholic church is the next victim come victimizer in this story. The church has exposed itself to these fictional treatment by having concealed, lied and protected the guilty, and now are an easy target, for the worst kind of fictional retribution; again the emphasis is on truly explicit scenes that are presented in detail, nothing is suggested, you get the full on gore and on the other hand you are also given explisit sessuality with exquisite clinical detailed that if not titillating is at least very descriptive.

So if you are easily offended I would not enter Masterton territory, he is very good at setting up a stories within stories and creating likeable characters to follow and nasty ones to move and link the plot, there is some stretching of credulity but it is forgivable because in the end it keeps you interested.

Not for everyone but very good R rated entertainment that keeps you interested with a very good heroine.

Caroline Lennon is a fantastic reader, she acts every scene and her accents are such a complement to the story, she has made this books come alive and nearly impossible to stop listening.
