Product description

Review

This is my first read by Brian O’Hare and it won’t be my last. He is a remarkable author with a unique style of writing. Words flow effortlessly, and pacing is controlled with precise control. Scenery is vividly painted in the reader’s mind, while compelling action takes place.

 

So in this particular mystery, we have many layers to an investigation, which proves addictive for the reader, whether their preference is mystery or not.
You’ll be spellbound, guaranteed!

 

 

So this book revolves around the murder of 3 people, all taking place, strangely enough, at 11:05. Even weirder, each murder takes place on a Tuesday. The clues are uneven, pointing at random suspects, but it all seems too easy. Then there are far too many questions unanswered. For example, why were they all killed at that time, and on a Tuesday? What is the significance? What is the meaning? Are they connected? Do they perhaps link back to a horrible event that occurred twelve years previously? But Inspector Sheenan doesn’t have a lot of time to figure out the connections, as if the pattern follows, another murder will take place the following Tuesday. Then there is the added pressure of one of his team being kidnapped, and having mere minutes to find them!

 

 

This is suspenseful and energetic, never a dull moment. This book oozes action and adventure, while still holding onto the genre of Mystery by keeping our minds working.

 


This is more than a simple ‘whodunit’. This goes beyond any Mystery book ever written. It delves deep into the characters, and the plot. And perhaps the past comes into play? One thing is for sure, you are guaranteed plenty of twists and surprises, that you won’t see coming!
The character of Inspector Sheenan has been personalized excellently, almost as if the writer knows an inspector like this. Brian has created a likeable character that we sympathize greatly with, and worry for when the going gets tough.

All in all, this is a riveting read. An explosive mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end, riddled with unseen surprises, breathless suspense and unsettling twists. An epic mystery that every reader will enjoy!

---

This is an excellent crime story and quality piece of writing, which I've spent much too much time today reading! This is the second book I've read featuring Inspector Sheehan and the author is creating a great detective series. Sheehan is a dedicated, thoughtful, intelligent Inspector who solves crimes through hard work and teamwork. He is the type of boss everyone would want and also the type of police officer you want to investigate any crime committed against you or your family. I thought the new female Sergeant on the team was interesting and the characters in general are very believable. We gain insights to both their professional and personal lives, which makes them come alive. I also enjoy the Irish settings, dialogue and references to the troubled past. It all helped to transport me to a place I don't know very well but enjoyed reading about. The heart of any crime story is the plot and we have a good story linking events in the past with some grisly murders in the present and a number of suspects. The clues are there but not obvious!
This is a very entertaining, well written murder story, which I strongly recommend.

I write this review as a member of the Online Book Club org.
This police procedural novel, the second in The Inspector Sheehan Mysteries series, is set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and it has it all: mysterious murders, a complex set of suspects that will keep fans of the genre spinning the wheels of their brains, a fascinating backdrop that includes political and religious issues, secondary themes that are in everybody’s minds (police corruption, sexual harassment, domestic violence, rape, stalking, financial crisis…), a team of policemen made up of distinct and realistic individuals, great dialogue, detailed crime scene investigation, touches of humour and even a dab of romance.
The story is told in the third person and it is narrated from the point of view of a variety of characters (mostly members of the police team, although also some chapters by some of the suspects), but there are no sudden changes in viewpoint and it does not cause any confusion. Instead, the style of the storytelling helps create a puzzle where the reader has more clues than any of the given characters, but there are also delayed discoveries and many red herrings, so things aren’t quite as easy as one might initially think. Being able to share in the different characters’ opinions and motivations gives the reader a multifaceted view that increases the intrigue.
At the beginning of the story we have a female Sergeant Detective, Denise Stewart, join Sheehan’s team. She has been through a harrowing experience at her previous post that has made her defensive and suspicious. Despite that, it doesn’t take long for her to realise Sheehan’s team is different and she starts to relax.

The 11:05 Murders - Brian O'Hare

Title: The 11:05 Murders
Author: Brian O'Hare
First Published in the UK: 2016
Publisher: Crimson Cloak
Pages: 378
Price on Amazon: Paperback £9.78 Kindle: £2.00
ISBN: 1681600722

A time for murder, Clock strikes 11:05 and so does murder.

Murders occurring on consecutive Tuesdays at 11:05 pm, the victims linked from twelve years ago at university. A cufflink at each crime scene, a suicide victim from twelve years ago. An affair, A known criminal gone legit. Stalkers, Hit and runs. This book has it all. But how does it all fit together?

When the body of a man is found in his home, his throat slit and his penis cut off and placed in his mouth. The police begin to look into his life. With nothing to go on except a single cufflink from the crime scene, this is going to be a tricky one.

The case continues and more evidence and clues come to light, with several suspects can the police catch the killer before he kills again?

I enjoyed this book, This is another of my read to review books. Although this is the second book in the series and I have not read the first I found it really good, I didn't feel like you needed to have read first one.

I must admit at the beginning of books like this I like to make a guess as to who I think the killer is. Without giving away any spoilers, I didn't think the killer was who it turned out to be but I did think there was something funny about him, I didn't trust him and didn't like him as a character. So I was shocked to find he was the killer but I should trust my instincts in believing there was something funny about him.

The body of a man in his early 30s is found in the man’s home, the body mutilated and his throat slit. Chief Inspector Jim Sheehan of the Belfast Police leads the investigating team, and finds a number of unusual things – a broken cufflink that doesn’t belong to the dead man, a watch deliberately stopped at 11:05, and a laptop with information about a young woman who committed suicide 12 years earlier.

Sheehan’s team includes a new detective sergeant, Denise Stevens. She’s transferred to the detective unit from a police station where she experienced verbal and physical abuse from her fellow (male) police officers. She finds an entirely different atmosphere with Sheehan’s team, and she brings a sharp mind and a new perspective. She also unknowingly brings a stalker.

Then there’s a second murder, and the list of possible suspects grows to include bankrupt property owners and a former IRA revolutionary turned thug businessman. Stevens is convinced, however, that the solution to the deaths lies in the past, and specifically around the Queens University college student who committed suicide following a brutal rape.

“The 11:05 Murders” is mystery writer Brian O’Hare’s second Inspector Sheehan novel, and it’s one that’s extremely difficult to put down. It sizzles with action, suspense, and more than a few nail-biting developments as you watch Sheehan and his team move and sometimes stumble towards a solution.

O’Hare is a retired assistant director of a large regional college in Northern Ireland. The Doom Murders is the first Inspector Sheehan novel.
