Summary
Inspector Mike Mulcahy is forced to leave Spain when his drug squad is disassembled and return home to Dublin; Mike is temporarily put to work alongside a sex crimes team. The job becomes more permanent after an attack leaves a young girl brutalized. Soon, the number of victims piles up and the newspapers begin sensationalizing the story of "The Priest," a maniac who brands his victims with metal crosses. Dubliners pray that this "priest" will soon be brought to justice.
Critique
A hard-boiled riveting mystery filled with nonstop suspense. This debut will leave the reader eagerly awaiting a second installment. Recommend.
