Katie McGuire is still encountering some nasty killers in Cork, in this the second novel in the series. This time a bloated body of a priest is found floating in the river by some fisherman, and he has been tortured and is missing some sensitive body parts.
Her private life is getting interesting too. After a year long relationship with farmer John, he is now beginning to put some pressure on and decisions must be made, nothing will be easy for her.
She is fast becoming my new thriller hero, as I am enjoying her stories and she seems to hold her own without getting into crazy scenarios like old Tempe Brennan or Kay Scarpetta - if you like those books, I think this series will be right up your alley. 4/5
