It’s unseasonably warm this 1950s summer in Dublin. Inspector Hackett takes pathologist Quirke with him when he goes to investigate what’s made to seem like the suicide of a prominent Dublin businessman. They find and interview the ever-so-cool Mrs. Jewell and her sister-in-law fragile Dannie. Clues take Quirke back to his orphanage past. This is a wonderful mystery series, though I didn’t care much for the last one ‘Elegy for April’. Black, or John Banville, his real name, is in fine form in this one, bringing in all the family members those reading this series will grow fond of—flaws and all. Thankfully, Quirke is somewhat ‘on the wagon’ this book, making it easier for me to like him!
