Just when one supposes the Murder Mystery has been done to, eh, death, and no surprises remain which haven't been rehashed time and again, Passion Killer comes along.
With its fresh take on the whodunnit genre, Passion Killer's setting in the West of Ireland amid the lives and loves of a group of friends paints a realistic glimpse of the social milieu,- their work, career, and sexual interactions- that is utterly contemporary. It more than fulfills the promise of a gripping story, absorbing the reader in the pacy unravelling of myriad clues and red herrings right to the end when it delivers an unexpected twist, that wholly satisfying surprise ending. I won't spoil it. That, you will have to read for yourself.
