I think this series is getting better and better. 4.5 stars. CID Detective Inspector Sean Duffy is a wonderful character, flawed in many ways (drinking, smoking hash/weed, unlucky in relationships), but uncompromising in his principles and supportive of his fellow peelers. An attractive female reporter is found dead in a locked tourist attraction (Carrickfergus Castle), either an apparent suicide or a murder victim of the elderly male caretaker. She was there covering a Finnish company's due diligence as a possible site for a new manufacturing plant, but her motives are quickly questioned when Duffy and team examine her work computer. As always, Duffy is threatened repeatedly and has several near brushes with death. He solves the case, but justice moves in mysterious ways. I like his personal story in this fifth book, and his adoption of the murder victim's cat. Oops, was that a spoiler??

Highly recommended for fans of Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series.
