When human remains are discovered by a construction company that is preparing farmland for housing, several secrets in Duneen in rural County Cork begin to be revealed. What happened to Tommy Burke? Was he really seen getting on a bus leaving town 20 years ago? Or is he the body?
This is a fair debut novel by Graham Norton, and it’s a fun and relaxing read. I particularly enjoyed his characterisation, especially Sergeant PJ Collins. I did however guess a few of the twists, which doesn’t usually happen when I read a mystery!
