9780688141837: The Death of an Irish Sea Wolf: A Peter McGarr Mystery

Fifty years after a foreigner appeared on a remote island off the Irish Coast and began bestowing money and gifts to the townspeople, the island is being ravaged, and Peter McGarr, head of Ireland's Special Crimes Unit, must find out why.

Review:

Mystery writers often seek foreboding locales as the settings for their tales, and Bartholomew Gill has certainly found such a spot in a wind-swept, desolate island in the North Sea. You can almost see the fog rolling through the crusty seascape towns as investigators come from Dublin come to look into the disappearance of an old man. Gill mines Irish folklore to provide depth to the tale, which is equal parts mystery, adventure, description and history all combined to craft an intriguing book.

About the Author:

Bartholomew Gill authored 15 Peter McGarr mysteries, among them The Death of an Irish Lover, The Death of an Irish Tinker, and the Edgar Award nominee The Death of a Joyce Scholar. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, Gill wrote as Mark McGarrity for the Star-Ledger. He died in 2002.
