A double murder is twice as tantalizing for Northumberland's irreverent and intimidating Detective Chief Inspector. "This series [is] a winner" (Booklist). Irish ex-rugby player and now successful businessman, Jim O'Connor, has been shot dead at point blank range in the parking lot of Claughton Towers where he was hosting a celebratory dinner. DCI Percy Peach is brought back from holiday to head up an investigation. It doesn't take long before he has a surfeit of suspects on close watch-from the victim's cheating wife and her lover to an avenging crime lord to a wrangler for a local prostitution ring to an assassin for the Provisional IRA. Considering Jim's dicey past, and shadier associations, each has a clear motive. But the case takes a sharp detour when Jim's upstanding and much-loved brother Dominic is taken out as well. To piece together this deadly puzzle, Peach looks a little closer to home where the most dangerous impulses may run foul in the O'Connor's family blood.
