Read from March 12 to 15, 2012

Fourth outing in a series that is growing in stature; focusing on the imperfect Inspector Devlin who despite personal shortcomings is a fine cop, a good friend and a devoted family man.
Links with characters from earlier stories provide a growing 3D picture around the Borderlands of Ireland. The threads are brilliantly brought together that make this a book that is difficult to put down. Short on description but McGilloway has a good eye for characterisation, human nature and crisp dialogue that propels the story on with energy and a sense of involvement beyond a passive reader.
