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...

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.

Can't Walt for More

This series is fantastic. I have enjoyed listening to the first two novels and am anxiously awaiting the third. Caroline Lennon is my favourite female narrator by far.
