Summary

Summary

The O'Sullivan clan couldn't be prouder of Siobhan, but there's no time to celebrate as she's already on a case, summoned by the local priest to examine the appearance of a dead man in the church graveyard-aboveground. He's a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town, searching for his Irish ancestor. As Siobhan begins to dig for a motive among the gnarled roots of the victim's family tree, she will need to stay two steps ahead of the killer or end up with more than one foot in the grave . . . "Captivating . . . Fans of mysteries with an Irish flavor will look forward to Siobhan and Macdara's further adventures." -Publishers Weekly


Author Notes

Carlene O'Connor comes from a long line of Irish storytellers. Her great grandmother emigrated from Ireland filled with tales and the stories have been flowing ever since. Of all the places across the pond she's wandered, she fell most in love with a walled town in County Limerick and was inspired to create the town of Kilbane, County Cork. Carlene currently divides her time between Chicago and the Emerald Isle. Please visit her online at CarleneOConnor.net.

Publisher's Weekly Review

At the start of O'Connor's captivating third Irish Village mystery (after 2017's Murder at an Irish Wedding), Father Kearney summons Siobhán O'Sullivan, who's about to start her first day at Kilbane Gardai Station, to St. Mary's Churchyard, where the body of a man lies in the snow. Someone fatally shot the victim, later identified as American Peter Mallon, the patriarch of the wealthy Mallon family. Fingers point to everyone involved with filming a documentary in Kilbane about the Mallons' Irish heritage. Siobhán is dismayed to discover that she must report directly to her ex-boyfriend Det. Sgt. Macdara Flannery, who's been temporarily called up from Dublin to help close the case. They forge an uneasy partnership as they question suspects and uncover a tangled web of brotherly betrayal and unresolved heartbreak. Fans of light mysteries with an Irish flavor will look forward to Siobhan and Macdara's further adventures. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
