First-year detective Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop. He's tall, handsome, and enigmatic. He also has a knack for solving London's most high-profile crimes. Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when someone is lying-- a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses. Acton and Doyle are sent to investigate the murder of a trainer at a racetrack, and soon new killings related to the first start unfolding, dragging the two investigators into ever more perilous situations. But the real danger is the unlikely attachment that develops between the ultrareserved, aristocratic chief inspector and his spirited, working-class sidekick

13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
'Riverrun past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs ..." So starts Finnegans wake, the greatest challenge in twentieth-century literature. Who is Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker? And what did he get up to in Phoenix Park? And what did Anna Livia Plurabelle have to say about it? In the rich night time language of dreams here is history, anecdote, myth, folk tale -- and above all, a wondrous sense of humour coloured by a clear sense of humanity. In this exceptional reading by the Irish actor Jim Norton, with Marcella Riordan, the world of the Wake is more accessible than ever before. The abridgement, made by the composer and Joyce enthusiast Roger Marsh, is presented with the text, allowing the listener to get deeper into Joyce's labyrinth

Kathleen Doyle is on the trail of a killer who seems to be intent on handing out vigilante justice--killing those who, for one reason or another, have not paid the price for their crimes. But as she gets closer to the killer, other dangers lurk. Solonik has reared his head again, pulling Doyle into his web in unexpected ways. And Acton is acting surprisingly distant, given his usual fascination with his new wife.

Still worse, Kathleen senses that Acton is carrying out a "scorched earth" retribution of his own and that he instigated the turf war to rid London of its villains.
