Quirke #6: Holy Orders: A Quirke Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST MYSTERIES OF THE YEAR BY THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

The latest Quirke case opens in Dublin at a moment when newspapers are censored, social conventions are strictly defined, and appalling crimes are hushed up. Why? Because in 1950s Ireland, the Catholic Church controls the lives of nearly everyone. But when Quirkes daughter, Phoebe, loses her close friend Jimmy Minor to murder, Quirke can no longer play by the churchs rules. Along with Inspector Hackett, his sometime partner, Quirke learns just how far the church and its supporters will go to protect their own interests.

In Holy Orders, Benjamin Blacks inimitable creation, the endlessly curious Quirke brings a pathologists unique understanding of death to unlock the most dangerous of secrets.
