really liked it

A witty and engaging novel describing the aftermath of a body being found in a sleepy Irish village. I wouldn't have guessed this was by Graham Norton if his name wasn't on the cover, and I wouldn't have guessed it was a first novel.

The characters are endearing, and the plot is relatively pacey while still allowing space for carefully observed description. The resolution of the main plot is a bit disappointingly 'crime novel by numbers' and doesn't fit tonally with the rest of the book, but I enjoyed reading this nonetheless.
