Description

Bridges Down—Roads Impassable—Killer Trapped

April in Florida and Benedicta (Ben) O’Keeffe is enjoying balmy temperatures during the last few days of a six month stint with a U.S. law firm. A week later, she returns to Glendara, Inishowen, where a charity cycle event is taking place. The town is abuzz with excitement, but it starts to rain, causing the cyclists to postpone the start of their event and stay overnight in the town. The rain doesn’t stop—it becomes relentless, torrential.

In the middle of the night, Police Sergeant Tom Molloy is called out to Mamore Gap, where a body, dislodged from a high bank by the heavy rain, has fallen onto a passing vehicle. It is identified as Bob Jameson, a well-known charities boss and the organizer of the cycling event. Stunned, the local doctor finds evidence of a recent snakebite. Terrible weather persists and soon bridges are down and roads are impassable. Glendara is completely cut off and since there are no native snakes in Ireland, could there be a killer trapped in the community? With no help from the outside world, it’s left to Molloy—with Ben’s assistance—to find out who is responsible for Bob Jameson’s bizarre death.

Perfect for fans of Louise Penny, Lisa Gardner—and, of course, Agatha Christie

Death at Whitewater Church
Treacherous Strand
The Well of Ice

Advance Praise

Praise for the Inishowen Mystery Series

“Carter keeps the suspense high en route to the exciting climax. Fans of Gerald Elias’s Daniel Jacobus series will want to check this out.” —Publishers Weekly

“[Death at Whitewater Church is] haunting, atmospheric, and gripping. One of the finest Irish mystery debuts of recent years. Tana French has some serious competition.”—John Connolly, New York Times best-selling author

“The weather, as an additional character in the plot, is very effective. Though part of a series, this book can be read as a stand-alone. Recommended for fans of Carlene O’Connor and the “County Cork” series by Sheila Connolly.” —Library Journal

“Combining elements of the locked-room mystery with those of a village cozy, Carter offers a tale that is both charming and surprisingly complex.” —Booklist

“A phrase written for the [Inishowen Mystery] series debut begs revisiting: What starts as a metaphoric soothing tea, served in exquisite porcelain, ends with the kick of a brandy-laced double espresso. —Bookreporter

Treacherous Strand is atmospheric, intelligent and utterly gripping - a real treat for fans of Irish crime fiction.”—Catherine Ryan Howard, USA Today best-selling author

“[Murder at Greysbridge] is truly a perfect choice for fans of character-driven mysteries set in thrilling surroundings . . . It has everything a reader could possibly want in a stellar piece of writing. Agatha Christie would be proud.” —Suspense Magazine

“[The Well of Ice is] another riveting suspense thriller of a mystery from an accomplished master of the genre.” —Midwest Book Review

“An entourage of fascinating people and mysterious places lace [Death at Whitewater Church] with plenty of bark and bite. A captivating gem.”—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author
