Summary

In his new life as a bartender at the Little Shamrock, Dismas Hardy is just hoping for a little peace. He's left both the police force and his law career behind. Unfortunately it's not as easy to leave behind the memory of a shattering personal loss - but for the time being, he can always take the edge off with a stiff drink and a round of darts.

But when the news of Eddie Cochran's death reaches him, Hardy is propelled back into all the things he was trying to escape - and forced to untangle a web of old secrets and raw passions, for the sake of Eddie's pregnant widow, Frannie, and for the others whose lives may still be at risk.

An average thriller

This is a good book without being exceptional. The guilty party became obvious form about one third of the way in. The motive was not, in my opinion, credible.

A great start

A great performance by Mr. David Colacci, laid back and funny in the right places.

Good first book in series

I really liked the book and I think considering it was written in 1988 it has was not to bad in terms of sexism and the likes. Sometimes a bit heavy on the characters feelings, when not with the main protagonists, but all in all a good listen. I am definitely going to buy the next in the series.
