Publisher's Summary

In a nursing home on the outskirts of Cork, an elderly nun lies dead. She has been suffocated. It looks like a mercy killing - until another sister from the same convent is found viciously murdered, floating in the Glashaboy river.
Why would anyone want to kill them? As she investigates, DS Katie Maguire discovers a 50-year-old secret that just might lead her to the killer...if the killer doesn't find her first.

Rough ride

I used to read Graham Masterton as a teenager in the 90s and came across this title in a recent sale. Couldn't leave it alone even at work! I'm a bit off police series at the moment but the characters are very sympathetic and likeable and I'll certainly be looking out for the other Katie McGuire stories. I hope they're read by the same narrator as she has the perfect soft Irish accent for the main character and did a good range of voices for the rest. If you're squeamish you may want to skip certain parts, skipping to the end of the chapter in the unpleasant bits won't affect the rest of the story and the next chapter will continue elsewhere in the story so you won't be shocked by what you skip to.

Mystery and suspense that’s gripping & intriguing.

Any additional comments?

Having loved all the other Katie Maguire books I was really looking forward to listening to this one and was not disappointed. I see some people have passed comments on the narration. At first I admit I too wasn’t sure about Noreen Leighton’s narration, so I went back and listened to some of the previous Katie Maguire books. Having done that, I concluded the narration was pretty good. I can’t comment on the quality of the Irish accents but the narration was more than acceptable for me. You don’t need to have listened to any of the previous Katie Maguire books as any links to previous books are covered. Once again, it’s a gripping thriller though certainly not for the faint hearted, as the crimes are rather graphic. Katie is gutsy Irish Detective Superintendent, with a personal life which is always quite interesting and sometimes as graphic as the murders that she investigates. If you are easily offended then this is probably not for you, but if you have listened to any of the other Katie books you will no what to expect, it doesn’t disappoint, another great story that will certainly keep you wondering what will happen next. Loved it.

Brilliant read

1st book I have read by Graham Masterton & thoroughly enjoyed it. Great characters & looking forward to getting to know Kate better so just about to start the next book. Even though this is not the 1st in the series I think I will go back & read all of this series as great storyline.
Narration was excellent
