Publisher Description

After joining the police force of her small Irish village, a local woman must investigate the murder of a stranger in this cozy mystery novel.
 
After solving two murders in the County Cork village of Kilbane, Siobhán O’Sullivan has accepted her calling and decided to join the Garda Síochána. The O’Sullivan clan couldn’t be prouder, but there’s no time to celebrate as she’s already on another case, summoned by the local priest who just found a dead man in the St. Mary’s graveyard—aboveground. 
 
He’s a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town, searching for his Irish ancestor. As Siobhán begins to dig for a motive among the gnarled roots of the victim’s family tree, she will need to stay two steps ahead of the killer or end up with more than one foot in the grave.
 
“Captivating . . . Fans of mysteries with an Irish flavor will look forward to Siobhán and Macdara’s further adventures.”—Publishers Weekly

In the Irish village of Kilbane, Siobhán O’Sullivan
is getting ready to start her first day as a Garda
after two years of schooling.
Father Kearney comes banging on her door. He has
found a body in the church yard. A dead body lying
above ground.
Off Siobhán goes into the St Mary’s churchyard to
where the body lies. It is an American and he is
pointing his finger at the headstone of his ancestor,
JOHN MALLON 1828–1903
Detective Sergeant Macdara Flannery who is
stationed in Dublin is sent down to lead
the investigation.
Lots of puzzling clues, an American family
researching their roots, each member with a
reason to do away with the deceased, a filmmaker
shooting documentary about their search and
findings, a nurse who turns out to be a fraud
plus the local villagers and Siobhán’s large
family running their own business keeps the
reader involved from the beginning right up
to the end.
So come take a quick trip to Kilbane, Ireland.
The author’s vivid, colorful and detailed description
will have you traveling from your chair to the
lush land of Ireland.
This is book # 3 in the Irish Village Mysteries series.
It presents the past with the present effortlessly.
