More than a decade before, a horrendous crime rocked County Tyrone in Northern Ireland and despite it becoming an almost cold case, the local authorities have not given up on finding the perpetrators. Across the pond, in America, former attorney John Costa finds himself intertwined in the ongoing investigation, and more importantly, with their prime suspect, who he is deeply in love with.
John’s own investigation leads him and his associates into a variety of dangerous situations both in the U.S. and in No. IR – it’s a masterful story of deceit, betrayal and deception. Very well written and incredibly difficult to put down (as I said, I finished one and immediately bought the next).
I had one complaint, which had to do with book 1, but was well addressed in the subsequent books. The author over-used the phrase “I’ve not”, if this was used by just one character, it probably wouldn’t have been bothersome, but unfortunately, almost everyone in book 1 used it, in addition, the author seemed a bit afraid of contractions, as such, much of the dialogue seemed forced. Please don’t let this deter you though, this a fantastic series and I am very much looking forward to Mr. O’Hannon’s next book.
Typically I receive books for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, however this is a verified purchase.

In Book Three, we, the readers, finally get to the conclusion of the tale. This book moves quicker than the first two. The ending is so fantastic!
I hated to read the last page, as I had become very fond of the adventures of John Costa and his assistant Mack.
Now, for those that like a bit of a tease, the first book takes the group to Ireland on the hunt for some answers to a long ago bombing. John is not sure whom they can trust with all the twists and turns. Is anyone who they claim to be? Who are the good guys? Are there any? You have money, murder, romance, and intrigue.
The second book takes you back to Ireland, there has been an escape. The same questions of who to believe, who to believe in, and what the... is happening. There are once again questions if loyalty and that hidden agenda of some that keep you guessing throughout the book. Who helped with the escape? Where are the funds coming from? Is there really a hidden fortune that was left by Connla? If so, will it be found in time or will John have to use his own funds to keep a rebel group active in stirring up trouble for a Nation that has already seen too much?
The third book has the cast once again in Ireland, people are dying, good people, or are they? Again, who can be trusted? What is the real story on Angela, on Karen? Will John ever really know? Now Jim is supposedly suspended...or is he? Well, I guess you need to start reading.
Hopefully you have a few days off so that when you find you can't put it down, you won't have to call in sick.
