Sheila Quigley's Holy Island Trilogy has all the hallmarks of a page turner....a global conspiracy with historic antecedents, murders, abductions and abuse of various kinds, with some separated lovers and cute dogs thrown in.

This is the last book in the Trilogy featuring DI Mike York and the Families where loose ends are tied up but with more questions you want answering hence why only gave it four stars but still a great read
