Publisher's Summary

One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a bundle of rags floating in the Blackwater River. It is the bloated body of Father Heaney. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the marks of garrotting wire. Worse still, he has been castrated.
When a second priest is found murdered, his body bruised and beaten and the same savage wound hidden beneath his soutane, Detective Inspector Katie Maguire finds evidence of a sinister cover-up at St Joseph's Orphanage. But the Catholic diocese still wields considerable power here, and the Garda are under pressure to close the case.
Katie has to work alone if she is to catch the killer in time - but first she must shatter a wall of silence that for decades has hidden a terrible secret. A secret that is beyond belief...

Porn and violence again!.

What would have made Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 better?

TONE DOWN the torture scenes and the sexual scenes, I don't need to share the feelings of a a vulnerable young woman being slowly and horribly tortured in minute detail. The sexual scenes are almost clinical certainly NOT sensual or romantic


What other book might you compare Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 to and why?

I would have to look under the S and M category.


Which character – as performed by Caroline Lennon – was your favorite?

Kate Magiore


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It is well written with clearly defined characters. Good background and without the S&M
a good book.


Any additional comments?

I bought the first book in this series and was so impressed by the strong writing and characters that I bought the second "Broken Angels" I did this in the belief that such a good author would not make the same mistakes twice. I was wrong.

I am returning the second one, first bad choice was mine, the second bad choice is Audible's

I thought this book was excellent!

Would you consider the audio edition of Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 to be better than the print version?

This story is gripping and very timely. I truly enjoyed listening. Narrator did an excellent job.


What did you like best about this story?

Interesting to consider that this or something similar may have happened to impoverished orphans in institutions years ago, well, not that long ago.
Stories about the Catholic clergy, the secrecy, the cover-ups, are very timely.
The fact that it takes place in Ireland, where so many are Catholic, was very interesting and made it more believable.


What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narrator did a credible job of both Irish and American accents.
