W S Krauss, February 25, 2013 (view all comments by W S Krauss)
Benjamin Black's (AKA John Banville) third book in the Quirke series finds Quirke just out of rehab for alcoholism. His daughter Pheobe comes to him concerned that she has not seen or heard from her friend April, whom she is fairly close to and speaks to daily. The story unfolds slowly as we learn more about Quirke, Pheobe and her friends. The suspense builds as Quirke and Hackett confront April's family, who don't seem to care what has happened to her, and that they have disowned for her wild lifestyle. Black describes 1950's Dublin as a city of beauty and atmosphere, but also prejudice, class and religious divides and conservative social mores. You will want to keep reading late into the night to find out how this one ends.

The third in the Quirke series by Benjamin Black - John Banville - is a brilliant, readable and literate mystery. Black/Banville explores church and family and tells a compelling story along the way while keeping us turning the pages as though it were a standard mystery. This has become my favorite mystery series and was my introduction to the writing of John Banville.
