Format: Hardcover
Danny O'Flagherty went to Ireland to research his roots what he found was his cousin Rose murdered and himself the chief suspect. Jonathan Harrington's novel takes the reader on a thrilling ride with Danny searching Ireland to find out who killed poor cousin Rose. Harrington writes an excellent whodunit with a host of suspects with plenty of opportunities. The reader, like Danny, will never be sure of the killer's identity until the very end.
If you love a good mystery, The Death of Cousin Rose is an excellent choice.

In THE DEATH OF COUSIN ROSE Jonathan Harrington provides a vivd picture of rural Ireland. An American teacher comes to Ireland in search of his roots and gets more than he bargained for. He is suspected in the death of his cousin Rose, who was about to give him an important message. In the search for the real killer, Harrington creates a village whose collection of quirky characters reminded me of one of my favorite TV series, BALLYKISSANGEL. This is an excellent tale of characters you'll come to enjoy -- and with an interesting twist at the end. Mary Devine, Marblehead, Massachusetts

Danny O'Flaherty has decided that it's time to go seek out his roots, so off he flies to Ireland to the small village of Ballycara. Prior to leaving the US, he had received a letter from his cousin Rose, who intimated that she had something interesting to tell him about his grandfather. After a brief stint in the local pub, he goes out to see Rose, only to find her dead. He is not alone at the murder site, though, and the local garda (portrayed here as a bumbler) pounces on Danny as the prime suspect. He isn't put under arrest, which affords him the opportunity to find out who really killed Rose.
The Death of Cousin Rose is the first in a series of books featuring Danny O'Flaherty. The story is good, the writing's okay but not great. It's an easy read, with a solution that I didn't see coming. I think there's probably more room for this character to grow and develop -- I hope so, since I have the other books sitting in my British reading room downstairs.
I'd recommend it to people who are more into cozy mysteries rather than those who like more hard-boiled fare. It's light and shouldn't take too long to complete. Overall...not too bad.

Format: Hardcover
Stuck in a foreign country and with just ten days to solve a murder for which he has been named the prime suspect, Danny O'Flaherty's plans to trace his family's Irish roots take him a bit further into the brush then he had intended to go. As he digs deeper into the secrets surrounding the homicide, Danny finds that the only way to unlock the mystery of his cousin's death is to first uncover his family's cryptic history. With plenty of action and tons of fun, Harrington pulls us into an emotional roller coaster full of highs and lows as we watch our hero fall in and out of love with Ireland- complete with sweeping landscapes, charming townspeople and a certain lady- friend. A warm, delightful, earthy mystery, THE DEATH OF COUSIN ROSE will keep you spellbound as its tale weaves its way into your heart.
