This review is from: Darkhouse (Paperback)
This is the story of an American detective who moves to Ireland with his family after one of his cases goes badly wrong. The detective ended up killing a man who turns out to have been part of a duo of serial killers in the 80s and 90s.
The remaining killer then comes to Ireland to get his revenge on the detective.
The story focuses on the present day in Ireland with the detective and his family, and also in the 80s and 90s with the serial killer "buddies" growing up in Texas. I actually found this backstory far more interesting than the stuff set in the present day, which more often than not, could have been "speeded up". Too much padding and not enough plot.
There were also too many characters introduced near the start of the book. But by that time they reappeared, you had forgotten who they were. Very few reminders were given along the way.
To sum up, not bad, but not brilliant either
