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...

Really enjoyed this second Kate Maguire book!

On to the third one! I wish there were at least 10 books in this series!

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.

Gripping and Gruesome

What made the experience of listening to Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 the most enjoyable?

Great narration, and a storyline that kept me gripped to the end.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2?

Unfortunately I think it will be the graphically described torture that will stay with me, although it was the likeable characters and sense of humour that made the book so enjoyable.

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

Her Irish accent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

A good listen. Some of the gruesome bits were a little too grisly for my taste.

Disappointing

Would you try another book written by Graham Masterton or narrated by Caroline Lennon?

Caroline Lennon is a fine narrator.

Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Masterton again?

No

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

Kate's father

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

Not really

Any additional comments?

Poor character development , especially of a female character. I agree with a previous reviewer, the sex scenes were formulaic - should have read the reviews before I bought it. More like a Dan Brown than a good detective read . No twists, just gratuitous sadism. This one's not for me.
