Devlin knows he cannot pursue an investigation relating to the body they were looking for but he has a hard time being convinced that this rule applies to the little girl. He remains unconvinced. It's a rather complicated plot because these later deaths of the babies all seem to lead to modern day criminals who carry on with their killing under the noses of the investigators. Devlin has, as before, significant help from his friend in the North, DI Jim Hendry, principally because the burying ground straddles the north/south border and Hendry can take a few more liberties.
Devlin's troubles at home centre aound a teenage daughter who was seriously injured in a riding incident in a previous book now finding her rebellious nature leading her to a liaison with the son of Devlin's nemesis, Morrison and Devlin's younger son feeling left out in the family heirarchy. I don't know whether all this social angst works. Another author has tried this but, for me, it tends to slow the pace of the book.Read more ›
What follows is an intriguing mystery, slow-paced at times but still a page-turner. Inspector Devlin's off-road enquiries rake up a past of fraud, greed and violence and the manipulation of young, vulnerable girls giving birth out of wedlock. As he begins to draw together seemingly unconnected people and events, more deaths follow and he puts his own family at risk.
The plot is believable, the characters engaging and if there's one thing I'll remember the book for, it's that scene with the drug dealer and the cess-pit. I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't have but I did laugh!
A good read with a satisfying conclusion.
Following on from `The Rising' we are also witness to the trials and tribulations of Devlin's personal life as Penny continues to wreak havoc with Devlin's position as a cop and his son Shane starts to show the first signs of rebellion that his daughter is becoming so accomplished at.Read more ›
The story was so compelling that I couldn't stop reading the book when I started it. This is the first book in the Inspector Devlin series that I have read, but it never felt like I missed anything by not having read the previous books. From the beginning, I liked Devlin and the rest of the characters in the book and any mentioned of stuff from the past made me just more eager to read the previous book in the series.
I liked that you didn't know if the dead baby and the missing Declan Cleary were connected in any way or and why someone would kill and bury a baby. Everything also gets's more complicated when a person close to Declan Cleary gets murdered. Is there someone out there that doesn't want the truth of what happened 30 years ago to come out?Read more ›
