It 's a dark and gripping thriller, full of suspense, intrigue and mystery.
Tadhg Sullivan was transferred from Dublin to Clare, a town fairly quiet, at least it seems. He was abandoned by Hellen, his girlfriend, and is the victim of alcoholism. His life is a total failure. Caroline, a girl of nineteen, is kidnapped while she is jogging. The year before a girl disappeared and was never found. This new case can keep Sullivan away from the bottle and is determined by all means, legitimate and less legitimate, to bring back that girl. Even he is asking for help from a leader of the IRA just released from prison. Behind all this there is a dangerous secret society .....
Caroline is a strong girl, has so much faith, if there is one person who can get out alive from this terrible experience that is her. She's afraid but also suffers for her parents, they will be very anguished. Sullivan is a great detective, despite his deep depression and his problems with alcohol. He's very tormented: save a life entitles you to use even non-legal means?
The story is told in the third person alternating points of view of Sullivan, Caroline and the kidnappers: knowing some details before the detective has helped increase the tension during the reading.
It's the second book in this series, but can be read as a stand alone, I have had no problems
It's an excting and fast paced thriller, quite realistic and well written.
If you like thrillers involving secret societies this is the right book for you
Tadhg quickly knows who has abducted the girl but he’s having a hard time getting into the alleged perpetrator’s home because the Minister of Justice and other higher-ups are protecting the criminal probably hiding the girl. So what does one do when bureaucracy blocks the way? Create a new plan. Once he has implemented his plan and rescued the girl, as well as arrested the homeowner, his troubles are only just beginning.
Now begins a spiral of violent scenes in which it becomes clear that there is a high-powered group called The Brotherhood, a cult into conducting ritual sacrifices never clearly delineated. However, what is immediately clear is they are very professional in eliminating anyone who poses a threat or could expose them. They also make it clear that Tadhg is on their constant radar and go after him and also someone very dear to him. Tadhg will have to rely on a CIA friend and a member of the IRA, no friend to anyone but essential as far as knowing what it takes to take down the enemy. The list of those involved is long and some are not only trying to disappear from Tadhg but also their own Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood… is superb crime/adventure fiction. Daithi Kavanagh has crafted a wild, tension-riddled plot that will keep the reader flipping the pages and unable to put down the novel. While the characters may be stereotypical, the story line certainly isn’t and is riveting, well-paced, thrilling fiction.
Great job, Daithi Kavanagh!
Sullivan finds himself drawn into seedy doings of a strange group of powerful individuals who refer to themselves as The Brotherhood. One of their rituals is sacrificing a virgin. Time is running out for the local girl, which causes Sullivan to enlist the services of an ex-CIA operative
My take on the book. The disillusioned detective finds purpose in a case is one of my favorite tropes, even though it is rather standard. The suspense, pacing, and settings makes the tale work. Some bits don’t line up with American sensibilities. One of these is the detective’s ability to search the surrounding houses for the girl without the trouble of a search warrant. It could be the villagers aren’t as paranoid as the average American.
Overall, The Brotherhood is an intriguing tale that offers redemption for Sullivan and entertainment for the readers. Two thumbs up for this mystery, which can be read as a stand-alone story too.
