BLEED A RIVER DEEP - Brian McGilloway
The third outing for Inspector Devlin and he hasn't got any smarter. As in the first two of this series half the trouble is caused by Devlin and if not by him, by other members of the constabulary. The trouble unfortunately results in people dieing.
As a detective Devlin is just a dogged plodder and stubborn with it, his solving the crime involves quiet a bit of luck.
This story involves illegal immigrants and gold, again set in the borderlands of Ireland. Devlin isn't the brightest but the authors plots are outstanding, 8 out of 10 and they save the books.
So, I'll keep reading them, Devlin must learn soon to think just a tad before acting. (Published 2010)
