Summary
Quirke, a pathologist, is off the bottle and trying to keep out of trouble when he learns about the mysterious death of the co-owner of a local beauty salon. His curiosity is piqued when her husband asks him not to perform an autopsy, leading Quirke into a world of deception and danger, eventually putting his daughter at risk.
Critique
Black again writes hauntingly of 1950s Dublin in this second of a series. Black's sultry themes, introspective characters and noirish atmosphere make for can't put down reading. A little slower paced than the first, but beautifully descriptive. Highly recommended.
