Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Deere's] skill at deploying red herrings and her penchant for romantic subplots assures that readers will be eager for more tales of murder in Ballynagh."-Publishers Weekly

Murder-Irish Style...

It is mid-October and unexpectedly cold in Ballynagh, the small Irish village that Torrey Tunet, the young American translator and sometime amateur sleuth, calls home. She has just built a fire of peat and coal to warm her cottage when a window frame collapses, letting in drafts of icy air. Asking around for the services of a carpenter, she hires local teenager Dakin Cameron to do a few repairs.

Dakin is an unusually helpful and likable young man with something on his mind. When he receives a threatening phone call at the cottage, Torrey resolves to try to help him. It seems that Dakin is the son of Natalie Sylvester Cameron, a beautiful heiress whose husband died tragically two years before. Dakin is distressed because someone is trying to blackmail Natalie-and even more distressed when the blackmail attempts lead to a case of murder. Determined to uncover the truth no matter what the cost-including the ongoing enmity of the local police inspector-Torrey Tunet must call upon all of her wits and courage to find a cunning killer at large...

"The writing is pleasant and swift...[and the]...Irish color is beguiling."--Booklist

Praise For Dicey Deere:

The Irish Cairn Murder

"Shows off some intricate plotting and a cast of eccentrics, including Jasper, Tunet's overweight gourmand boyfriend, and her rival, the inept and vengeful Inspector O'Hare." --Publishers Weekly

The Irish Manor House Murder

"Good writing, all the twists and turns of a complicated plot, peopled with well-rounded characters...should satisfy the most discriminating mystery lover."-The Tampa Tribune

"Interesting characters keep one moving through the labyrinthine plot, and the local color is the green and silvered gray of Ireland."-Booklist

The Irish Cottage Murder

"There are easily enough plots, subplots, and full-bodied characters to supply a half-dozen novels. An excess of riches, then, in a most promising debut."-Kirkus Reviews

"Every page has a new discovery, a surprise, a twist, a new character revelation. And the solution to the mystery is as convincing as it is unexpected."-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
