Fourth in the mystery series centered on Dr. Quirke, the dour Dublin hospital pathologist. This time, a newspaper tycoon is dead from a shotgun blast to the head, and circumstances are too suspicious to be suicide. Enter a non-grieving French widow, a corrupt orphanage, a high-strung half-sister, shadows from Ireland's WWII neutrality, grudges from occupied France and the overwhelming piety and oppression in the very small society of mid 1950s Dublin.
