Description

A man, hanging from a tree at the edge of the forest that surrounds Dockerty, Newry County, has been shot with arrows, two of which pin his belly to the tree trunk. Orwell Brennan, Dockerty’s chief of police, wonders whether it’s a hunting accident when a sergeant tells him it’s been ruled a murder. He also tells the chief that it’s now in the hands of Metro Homicide and outside his concern. But Orwell has never listened much to those telling him to mind his own business, and this case has far too many unanswered questions to suit him. He decides he can’t and won’t let it go until he knows what really happened?no matter whose toes he steps on. With a fast-paced, cinematic-like narrative, this murder mystery introduces a take-no-prisoners police chief, whose determination unearths some better-left-alone secrets.

Editorial Reviews

"A plot replete with smooth, clever words and smart wit."  “London Free Press


"Excellent first in a new series from Edgar-finalist Strange . . . Readers will appreciate the freshly drawn setting, especially the farms and woods outside Dockerty, as well as the vivid characters capable of startling revelations."  “Publishers Weekly (starred review)


"Take nothing for granted in this smoothly written series debut from Edgar finalist Strange (Body Blows), who springs out several surprises."  “Library Journal


"A down-home, folksy tale of murder and greed. It's well-paced, the dialogue hits the right tone and the colours of the story gently remind you of the Beachcombers. It's as deadly as that second arrow."  “Hamilton Spectator
