I myself has trust issues when it comes to relationship. I liked it just as well the second time. Thank you for sharing yourself with others. When it did come together it was extraordinary. I was born here and, though I have traveled and lived elsewhere, the sea called me back, and now I live just yards from where I was born. And I only allow an author one book a year, because I have to draw a line somewhere. When I first went into my many treasure of books to find an oldie but goodie, I couldn't remember what this book was about.
But I persisted and was rewarded with a good mystery, a love story and nice revenge for Lindsey.

Toby is a good-looking young man, he is bright and charming, and he comes from a comfortably off and closely-knit middle-class family. I still don't know quite what made me pick it. The fact of one individual having a room all to himself impressed me so greatly with a sense of luxury, refinement and power, that I neglected to observe its pitifulness and squalor.

The books that preceded this one have been compelling contemporary police procedurals, with a wonderfully real Irish settings. She planted enough suspects to keep me guessing, and no character or scene seemed wasted as a result, though the coincidences seemed a little too convenient at times. Perhaps we were too hard-headed. Her characterisations are rich and complex, and I can believe that this community existed and that these people lived and breathed.
