5.0 out of 5 stars 5th in the Quike Books, 31 Jan 2014

This review is from: Vengeance (Quirke Mysteries) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the 5th book in the Quirke series - however this is my 1st & it was possible to read & enjoy it without having read the others. (Having said that I have now just read Elegy for April - the 3rd in the series & will go on to read the others).

I enjoyed this book - is goes at a slow, measured pace to get to a solution - it is not a "wham bang" action thriller.

Dr. Quirke is a pathologist is 1950s Dublin & the strange events involving 2 families capture his attention and that of Inspector Hackett.

The Delahaye family & the Clancy family have been involved in business for several generations. At the beginning of the novel Victor Delahaye & Davy Clancy go out sailing .... Victor takes out a gun and shoots himself dead .......

I went to Dublin in the 1980s ... I think the feel of Dublin is very much here in the book.

Quirke himself is a very flawed character & the "back story" of his earlier life is interesting & strange - to get the full picture I think I must read the rest of the series.
