Jim Clarke investigates the brutal death, in Sandymount Park, of Jennifer Marks - daughter of the leader specialist.
Micko Kelly, drug addict is the obvious suspect.
The writing is taut and effective and bowls along at steady pace.
I found the denouement strained credibility! Apart from that it was enjoyable.
There is another story intersecting this one. It is that a heart surgeon's daughter from the same hospital is murdered in a Dublin park. There is a likely drug addled suspect that the police start chasing which is pretty interesting too.
The two stories start coming together and so the story strains credulity a bit as storm down to the finish. But I enjoyed it and the pace was certainly fast. I am willing to try another one of this author's books. I'd liken him to Ken McClure in England who writes similar medical novels. McClure is also a doctor.
