Earphones Award Winner

Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Cold case detective Cormac Reilly has moved back to Galway, Ireland, where he grew up. Narrator Aoife McMahon delivers Cormac's low-key, hard-working style of detective work in an easy-listening manner in this multilayered police procedural. Characters such as Jack Blake, the victim; his partner, Aisling Conroy, a surgical resident who believes Jack was murdered; and Jack's sister, Maude, are well developed and realistic. This debut novel has a compelling storyline deepened by McMahon's Irish-accented voice, perfect pacing, and riveting attention to details. Building tension seems to come naturally to McMahon; his precise pauses add to the emotional impact. McTiernan's well-written story and McMahon's top-notch narration make this a compelling listen.
