Description
With each entry in this evocative series of Irish police procedurals, more readers become addicted to the adventures of Peter McGarr, the chief superintendent of Ireland's Special Crimes Unit. Now we see McGarr on his home turf--the streets of Dublin--battling his most dangerous enemy: Desmond Bacon, king of Ireland's heroin trade, known on the streets as "The Toddler."

A body is found shackled to the upper branches of the tallest tree in Ireland. The victim is a "Tinker, " one of the mysterious class of itinerant travelers who have roamed Ireland for generations. The murder bears all the signs of being the Toddler's work--but who was the victim, and why was he killed? The answer lies with a Tinker woman named Biddy Nevins. She's the only one who can put Desmond Bacon away--if McGarr can get to her before the Toddler does.

Full of Bartholomew Gill's wonderfully authentic observations of Irish culture, The Death of an Irish Tinker is a suspenseful thriller and gripping mystery.
