Summary

A tranquil Irish vacation, music, scenery, food...and a priest on the run from the mob.
The sequel to the number-one best seller, The Tour.
When a shadowy couple turn up on Conor O'Shea's grand tour of Ireland, the tranquility of Ireland's landscape acts as a shelter against the stormy reality of the life they left behind. On the run from a notorious mob boss, this mysterious couple flees the US in search of sanctuary on the shores of the Emerald Isle, hoping to blend in with the tourists. In their wake lies a mafia family's secrets and a scarred priest torn between his duty to the cloth and to the truth.
Intriguing and uniquely consuming, Father Declan Sullivan's tale of destiny and duty lies at the feet of those he has betrayed. Can distance and deliverance save the innocent in their desperate pursuit for peace, or will evil catch up to them all?
In Safe at the Edge of the World, author Jean Grainger captures the soothing beauty of Ireland in the lives of those fleeing a criminal bent on revenge.

Unexpectedly brilliant story

Although I have enjoyed Jean Grainger's other books, the summary made me a bit cautious about ordering this one. I could not see how the author could make a bus tour into a novel, even an Irish one! I was so wrong because it was a brilliantly written story. In addition to a gripping plot, involving American gangsters, sidelining into various aspects of the Catholic Church, the story managed to incorporate the lives of other passengers. It also described the Irish towns the bus visited on tour. The narration was pretty good too. All in all, the book was great value. Thank you.

Interesting characters and story

This was somewhat different from the first book, The Tour, but just as interesting and well done. The story focused primarily on one couple on the tour, rather than several as in the first book. Although several other reviews have been critical, I thought the author made the right decision in telling it this way. The book did raise some serious questions about right and wrong and perhaps that would not appeal to some listeners, but I thought it was very well done.
I thought the narrator did an excellent job also. I am looking forward to listening to other books by the author and I hope there will be more books in The Tour series. If I were sure of finding as good a guide as Connor, I would definitely go on one of his bus tours. Ireland sounds like it would be a wonderful place to visit.

comment

could have benefited greatly from having more than one reader for the story The male voice detracted at several points especially for the character of Luchia. the voice of Declan was awkward as well.
