The sixth novel in the Dublin Murder Squad series is the best yet. The central murder of the book isn’t sinister or unusual, it’s a mundane death, probably from a romantic quarrel. But as Detective Antoinette Conway digs into the history of the victim, she starts to suspect a larger conspiracy. Conway is already an outsider in the department–it doesn’t matter how tough she is, she will always be a woman–and she struggles to work out real conspiracy vs everyday misogyny. The plot is a maze of twists and turns, the prose is razor sharp, and Conway holds it all together with a bold narrative voice.
