Excellent police procedural that takes place in and around Dublin and the Burren, a rocky land in the west of Ireland. Inspector Matt Minogue describes it this way: “ Not enough earth to bury a man. Not enough timber to hang him. Not enough water to drown him.” Yet the monks who founded Corcomroe Abbey in the 12th century blessed it, “Holy Mary of the fertile rock.”

Matt, who was raised in the area on a farm he has few ties but family to, is called back by his family to look into his nephew’s leg

This is an entertaining series of mystteries because the atmosphere and the dialect is so heavy. This is about a very complicated, unsolved mystery that dates back more than a decade, and also about our hero. who has fallen under the spell of a local beauty married to a local prince. Other plots weave in and out and our hero narrowly escapes death.
John Brady knows Ireland and tells a wicked series of mysteries in the Inspector Matt Minogue Series. There is a new one coming in the catch up.
My first John Brady, won't be the last. He can write! Plus it's a great visit with the Irish dialect and settings.
