Tadgh | 28 comments I doubt I know it, but I do want to do what I can to help find it.

Do you remember if the murderer's occupation simply is teacher (and he killed a non-student, non-colleague such as his wife), or if he's a teacher who's killed a student?

Was it part of a series? If so, does Ken Bruen (author) or Jack Taylor (cop main character of 1 of his series) ring a bell? Most other popular Irish crime fiction author seem to write series. If it's not, it may narrow it down, even if it makes it harder to find. I mean, GR has a list of 133 "Popular Irish Crime Fiction Books," and it's largely the same prolific handful of authors.

Tadgh | 28 comments Just skimmed the GR synopsis for any book on that list published as late as 2004 (jic) or earlier. It seems only 2 have anything to do with a single murder with a delay between it and the investigation: Following the Wake (2002) and Haunted Ground (2003).

There's plenty on that list with lacking descriptions, and I'm not the best reader/skimmer so I may have missed something. If it's not either of those, it seems it's at least not listed on this site.
