It's just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career? When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are just a few things that bother Duffy enough to keep the case file open. Which is how he finds out that she was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond. And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?

"Rain Dogs" by Adrian McKinty was a wonderfully atmospheric mystery. Set in 1987, right in the middle of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. McKinty sets up a locked room mystery with the room being Carrickfergus Castle. The bad guys are a bunch of Finns. And, we soon know what sort of trouble we are dealing with 'cause Jimmy Savile figures prominently. Thus, we also know that this is a mystery that can't end with everything wrapped up nice and neat. So the end is weak but it is a good read.

This trilogy is by far the best work of this author. Together they provide an uproarious read.
