    In Dublin, Ireland, the Book of Kells is stolen from the Trinity College Library and Peter McGarr must solve the mystery of whodunit before his enemies successfully frame him and destroy his career But who exactly his enemies are isn t always clear I really enjoyed this novel The complexity was wonderful the language was just plain fun I never really felt like I had the entire mystery figured out every time I d start to think I knew the answers, Gill would throw a wrench in the plot I enjoy plot [...]

    Chose this book because it is set in Ireland and wanted to continue my recent time spent there in some small way And because I like mysteries and am always looking for a new series.This one was a little frustrating Clearly I came in in the middle of the series, which can be disorienting and was The crime, the theft of The Book of Kells from Trinity College, was intriguing The characters were compelling and the plot twists were good I like the way it presented 21st Ireland as a country in transit [...]

  4. Martin Mulcahey

    Don t let this be your introduction to Bartholomew Gill This is not a bad book, and I only give it a half hearted review because I bought it believing I would get of a historical thriller instead of detective novel I know, my fault The other thing is that even if I had loved the content so much of McGarr s past was given away in this book that I have no need to get the other books since I know their endings already Overall not a bad book, but I thought the character of Orla Bannon was wasted Sh [...]

  5. Maurean

    I rather enjoyed this easy, semi cozy a bit of gorey detail , but still light reading mystery it was wonderful in its descriptions,interesting Irish lore, and it had everything just right the bad guys get their come up ence, and the hero gets the girl As is typical, I find a new author by their final work, but the sucker for series that I am, I will look for other McGarr titles, most specifically The Death of an Irish Politician the 1st in the series ,and The Death of an Irish Sinner cause the p [...]

  6. Linda

    I liked the information about the Book of Kells, and I loved the visit to Dublin I liked the protagonist McGarr, but the supporting characters didn t seem that distinct to me Well, except for the two wives, one husband thing which I didn t like in this book any than in the other in this series that I read Also, this book came right up to the edge of my tolerance for violence Still, I d read in this series just for the location, especially when I m in the mood for a police procedural which is o [...]

  7. Melani

    Bartholomew Gill has written a complex, suspenseful, and intelligent mystery In addition, he delves into the personal struggles of Peter McGarr of the Dublin Murder Squad McGarr is still dealing with the loss of his wife and father in law, trying to find hope while being submersed in the murky crime world of Dublin A wonderful tale I only wish Bartholomew Gill were still alive to continue his wonderful work.

  8. Gloria

    Definitely a light summer read, with the typical set up of the tough but tender policeman etc However the setting and the additional details of some Celtic history makes it justifiable in the face of the stacks of serious academic reading Not as justifiable as an Amanda Cross or many o he Soho imprints, but justifiable for a quick afternoon read.Very bloody, lots of sex from a male perspective and tons of swearing Don t say I didn t warn you.

  9. Larry

    The 16th and final peter McGarr mystery brings McGarr the beginnings of closure on the increasingly ugly nature of Irish society High end art theft, murder, and ultra conservative church politics of the sort that had left to the death of McGarr s wife and father in law a book earlier maintain a plot that should have led to three or four seres books, but Gill died before his time.

  10. Michael

    Not very well written book Somewhat entertaining, but the writing itself was not good A lot of the time it was hard to tell who was speaking Really unfortunate since this would have been a nice series to read through.

  11. Emily

    I wanted to really like this book The idea was great in theory I just had a really hard time staying engrossed This is probably a bad book to start your journey with Peter McGarr, it s hard to sympathize with him if you don t know the background well enough.

  12. Karen Butman

    It was interesting I learned a little bit about the Book of Kells which is the focus of this mystery Interesting twist.

  13. Bonnie

    This series is very good if you have any interest in ireland at all Each one in the series tells about some aspect of Ireland and its people and the stories are well done as well.

  14. Jan C

    Not sure why I put this book down a few years ago I picked it back up and finished in just a few days.Forgot how much I enjoyed Gill s books Nice swan song.

  15. Lee

    Very much continuation of a series might be better if previous books had been read Very strong in setting.

  16. Genesis

    started off great, too much of the foul mouthed dirty side of Dublinbut I guess it was a murder mystery.

  17. Sandra

    Decent police procedural I would probably read Gill again, though it may have just amused me since I recently vacationed in Dublin and enjoyed all the references to places I had visited.

  18. Maura

    Very pleasant albeit simply mystery that takes place in Dublin Trinity College and involves the theft and ransom of the Book of Kells Fun to read of places I ve been.
