This is actually a brilliant book for an author s debut and if she can keep up the standard we are in for an excellent seriesI always like an Irish setting This book begins in a dilapidated ruin in the Galway countryside twenty years in the past with a dead body and two damaged children and I was instantly gripped Cormac Reilly is the young Guard who has to deal with this situation and it comes back to haunt him twenty years laterThe mystery in this book was the why than the who as it became increasingly obvious who was going to be responsible Actually having guessed who the main culprit was the story became tense On than one occasion I was saying things like No Don t give it to HIM as he continued to mosey around in the story as though he had done nothing at allAs you can tell I got emotionally involved which is always a sign of a good book This is a very good book and I highly recommend it to other mystery lovers

For a first book this was amazing However in the grand scheme of unsolved crime police procedural and historical mysteries this left something to be desired After thinking on it I think it was because the author attempted too much Impressive mind you But rather than doing a epicurean feast mostly well I tend to prefer simpler fare prepared very wellIt begins with a scene from 1993 when a brand new police officer guarda in Ireland is assigned to a call for a minor domestic It turns out that it is the falling down home of a fifteen year old girl Maude her six year old brother Jack and their uite dead mother It jumps forward twenty years and one month to 2013 and the perspective of Aisling a young surgeon in training who has just discovered she is pregnant a dream killer for her pediatric surgical residency The next chapter switches to the viewpoint of the officer now a detective as he roots through the cold case files in the small station at GalwayWe know eventually the stories of Aisling and the officer Cormac are going to intersect and they do but not before Maude also reappears Meanwhile both Aisling and Cormac have their own trials to deal with which rather prohibits either of them from paying solid attention to the investigationUnfortunately that lack of attention is the result I think of some choices that served plot over character Cormac was easy to believe as a person however he was completely unbelievable as a hard hitting elite task force Type A detective So that was weird since we were supposed to be in his head and we have this incongruity We were told uite a bit that he was part of an elite Dublin force he climbed the ranks guarda in Galway are jealous etc but we weren t shown any such thing and his behavior in this small town force seemed distracted and lackadaisical particularly as he delegated all sorts of grunt work to another guarda Fisher And don t get me started on his surprise about child abuse and inability to work a social worker fileIt s little things like that that interrupted my sense of story I d follow along and then be told how something was and then Logic Brain would come in and say Wait Wut Stupid Logic Brain A couple times I wasn t sure I believed striving Resident Surgeon either but then filed it under Grieving PartnerAnyway it s stuff like that that definitely makes it Not Tana French Really marketers talk about setting someone up to fail Although honestly word is that the last Tana French also was Not Tana French so there you go I guess it s like Tana because it is also about the historical roots of a mystery McTiernan tries to do a ton in this book mild spoilers view spoiler child abuse drug trade the thin blue line mental illness sexism cultural rigidity etc hide spoiler
