I found this author from reading a comment by another reader on this site discussing an early book by Adrian McKinty He had said that the early books by some of his favorite authors were not always the best including Mark McGarrity aka Bartholomew Gill At this time there are a few of Gill s books that make up the series featuring Inspector Peter McGarr that ring up at 199 on for kindle format Good reading for the price This author died in 2002 unfortunately not making it to age 60 but he did leave us 16 books I think to enjoy This first book came out in 1977 as did the second in the seriesWe are introduced to rather a large number of characters baptized in the political climate of Ireland and challenged with a somewhat complex plot There are many pubs to visit and drinks shared during interrogations at the Castle Dublin There is also wife Noreen who enjoys participating in investigations and sometimes feeding McGarr s dedicated staff There is also a healthy amount of artfully described scenes something I always look for and enjoy I won t describe the actionplot because it cannot be done without giving the whole thing awayI plan to tackle of these books in the near future

review McGarr and the Politician's Wife

Violent blow For McGarr the case was a welcome chance to escape the gloom of Dublin But from his first moment at the injured man's yacht club McGarr realizes getting at the truth will reuire fitting together a number of jagged pieces the world class sailor who ran both his boat and his life aground; the beautiful woman who paid his. This book the debut of a long running Peter McGarr detective series confounded my expectations in a couple of waysI went into this pretty cold seeking not much than a bit of Irish ambiance It was a bit cerebral than I had expected The protagonist avoids some of the detective cliches he doesn t seem to be haunted his mental health seems fine he s happily married That was kind of refreshing and the book was cerebral than I expected for lack of a better word There was a case to solve but the book was really about McGarr fighting the good fight to keep himself from being undermined by Irish internal government politics amid corruption and jockeying for positionThe book was published in 1977 so it was an interesting journey to a different time as well as a different placeI m not dying to find out what happens next but I ll be happy to pick up the next installment at some point
