A series debut that fans of Kate Atkinson or Tana French would like and set in Dublin and New York. When new evidence appears in Dublin Detective Maggie D’arcy findsand the re-opening of the investigation into the disappearance of her cousin 23 years which occurred earlier. This is an interesting story meshing both an active and a cold case, in the windswept and brooding terrain around Dublin. The writer conveys the scenes perfectly and grabs you from the very beginning, all the way to the surprise ending. A must read! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

Could not put this down! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

Problems were piling up for Bug Montage as fast as the past due bills. His daughter needed money to go to college, his mother was about to be ejected from the nursing home where she unhappily resides, and a new business in town had siphoned customers away from his mechanic's shop. Bug had a checkered past that he did not want to return to, but his legendary experience and skill behind the wheel made him the perfect guy to drive the getaway car after a jewel robbery. He calculated everything beforehand, figuring nothing could go wrong if his three partners-in-crime followed the plan. Everything went wrong. Totally enjoyable escapist fare with a sympathetically damaged protagonist, an intriguingly complex plot, and propulsive action sequences. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

A great mystery with all the stops pulled out, amnesia, missing manuscript, murder and several suspicious characters including our "hero?"

This is the perfect mystery for anyone who wants to escape to an island though bring your own sun.I love the prose that May brings to any of his works. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
