I enjoyed this read although it took me a little while to get into it. It’s set in a small town near Kilbane in County Cork and throughout the Irish setting is beautifully evoked. It’s about a young woman’s (Siobhan O’Sullivan’s) struggles to keep the family bistro going with her five siblings. Sadly the family lost their parents recently in an accident so life is tough. Then they awake one morning to find a murdered body sat at one of the bistro’s tables, dressed in a suit with a pair of pink scissors stuck in his chest.
There’s plenty of good craic as this story unfolds. Siobhan joins forces with the local Garda, especially Macdara ( cool name) and there’s also another American man on the scene who has film star good looks. There’s some tension ( no plot spoilers) and danger too as the story unfolds to a good end with some fiendish twists and turns along the way. Recommended ****
