She really liked this book could not put it down this is the third novel in the series of novels by brian mcgilloway featuring detective sergeant lucy black who works in the public protection unit in derry/londonderry, northern ireland
This is a solid police procedural driven by old-fashioned detective work rather than technology and set against a backdrop of social unrest (the police are not trusted by large parts of the community, both protestant and catholic) and the aftermath of the collapse of the celtic tiger which has left people adrift and vulnerable
Although this is the third in a series, i feel that you could start with this one and read the others later although i would recommend reading them in order (little girl lost, hurt, preserve the dead) to see how lucy develops as an officer and how her complex private life has evolved
Preserve the dead is a fast page-turner or clicker (like brain mcgilloways other series featuring garda inspector benedict devlin and set the other side of the border in donegal for the most part) and i look forward to seeing the next one
