I enjoyed the beginning of the book and the author is a great writer. I struggled a bit with the plot and pace of the story, there was not enough tension there for me. The protagonist, an odd and flawed man aptly names Quirke, works to solve the suicide of a prominant local figure. While the first body may have been a suicide, the next body is a homicide. The suspects are wealthy and obtuse, thus difficult to catch. And, is the murder related to the suicide?

Well written old-fashioned mystery, think it was recommended by Bookpage.
