Solicitor Benedicta "Ben" O'Keeffe is acting for the owners of the church, and although an unwelcome face from her past makes her reluctant to get involved initially, when Conor's brother dies in strange circumstances shortly after coming to see her, she finds herself drawn in to the mystery. Whose is the skeleton in the crypt, and how did it get there? Is Conor Devitt still alive, and if so is there a link? What happened on the morning of his wedding to make him disappear?
Negotiating between the official investigation headed up by the handsome but surly Sergeant Tom Molloy and obstructive locals with secrets of their own, Ben unravels layers of personal and political history to get to the truth of what happened six years before.
Death at Whitewater Church is the first in a series of Ben O'Keeffe mysteries set on the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal.

New mystery series set in Donegal
If you appreciate good writing and interesting characters set in interesting locales this is for you! This is the first book in a series by Andrea Carter. I can't wait to hear more! ( I hear that a TV series is also planned.)

Mystery in a small Irish town
Any additional comments?
A very enjoyable mix of mystery and small town life in Donegal with a delightful main character, "Ben" O'Keefe, a local solicitor who is more accustomed to property conveyancing than crime investigation but she cannot help herself from becoming involved in events which had their origin in the troubled past. I hope that we will hear more of her and Tom Molloy, a member of the local Garda. The narration by Melanie McHugh was an added bonus

Thrilled to bits with this series set in Inishowen
I love that this series is set in my home area, the Inishowen Peninsula. The author does a great job of describing the landscape, the small town communities and I really enjoyed the fact that the characters all sounded like they were from Inishowen by the expressions they used. It shows how familiar the author is with the area and its people. However, I felt that the narration was a little heavy on the use of 'cyar' for car as it's not really a pronunciation I hear very often.
A clever and complex mystery with surprising twists and turns. The character development in the story is excellent. I liked Ben. She is a smart young solicitor but haunted by her own tragic past. I liked the her friendship with Garda Molloy and I look forward to reading how things progress with them.
This is a series that I will definitely continue with. And I hope there will be many more adventures for Ben and Molloy to come.
