    5 Star BOOK REVIEW
Reviewed by Roy T. James for READERS FAVOURITE

The Doom Murders by Brian O'Hare is a story of a few murders. To begin with, a bishop is killed in a grotesque manner and the only notable clue from the naked body is an alphanumeric word. During the police investigation itself, more deaths of a comparable nature take place. When clues fail to emerge pointing to a plausible theory as to the criminal, the investigators turn to all possible forms of help, one being religious doctrine. With the help of biblical experts, the investigators manage to decode the writings retrieved from the scene of the crime, especially the alphanumeric word and its possible relevance, which leads the police in a totally unexpected direction.

The Doom Murders by Brian O'Hare is mystery at every turn of the page. The painstaking, repetitive and dry nature of detective work in solving a murder is shown in its real depth. To that end, O'Hare writes with a keen eye for detail with his tale evolving at a surprisingly fast pace. The stereotypes that dominate popular crime thrillers, especially these days, are notable by their absence and O'Hare leans toward the human side of his characters, imbuing them with a real world presence that is in turn witty and passionate. This is most evident in his lead, Jim Sheehan, who in his introspection wrestles with the conflicts of faith as his investigations progress. It's a cleverly contrived and highly thought provoking plot. A great crime thriller and an enthralling read.

From the Author

This is the first in a series of five books, all featuring Chief inspector Sheehan and his Serious Crimes Unit. The first four books have all received awards.  The fifth, The trafficking Murders, has only just been published at the time of writing this note (Oct. 22020), so there may yet be  an award down the line. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
