Publisher's Summary

It started with the judge. He was about to sentence five of Cork's most notorious criminals. But his body has just turned up, beaten and broken, on an isolated road in his burned-out car. Now four members of a rival gang have been shot, and in retaliation three civilians have been blown up. To Katie's horror, Cork is becoming a gang battleground like Dublin. Can Katie save the city? Can she save herself?

What was the point?

I don’t know what happened with this so called finale. It’s like Masterton just couldn’t be bothered finishing it. A real disservice to the characters and fans who had followed along all these years. Don’t read this, let it’s predecessor be how you remember the Katie Maguire series.

none of the good style of previous in series

if I'd picked this book up first, I'd never have read any others in the series. it doesn't even feel like the same author wrote it. No wonder he is saying is last in series. I think he is bored with it. However if it the last, it's a terrible ending. No respect for this story at all.

An excellent exit

It grieves my heart to know there won’t be any more “Katie Maguire” mysteries. I was put off by Katie’s emerging bisexuality which soften the blow from losing this very capable character.

Oh no.

I have read all the previous books, i still really enjoy the narrative but oh no, the accents were very poor, I thought most of the Irish characters sounded Welsh.....nothing wrong in that except the book is set in Ireland . Bought the book so i could enjoy and read it properly.

So glad it’s over!

I only stuck with this because of the original and final narrators but I have to stop doing this as it’s such a waste of credits! Throughout Katie was irritating, self centred, toyed with people’s emotions whilst keeping them on a string. She, as a successful woman naturally was sexually attractive to both men and woman, was beautiful with large heavy breasts! Obviously, only a woman like that could be successful! And the corruption which largely goes unpunished was farcical, the police must love books like this. There was far too much gratuitous sex. And the author has a strange way of removing characters they no longer want from the narrative, a method which continues throughout. I also can’t tell you if one single case was actually closed! So, my old refrain, do not keep listening just because you’ve started!!! But that’s all on me, I bought them, I listened

Good

I’ve listened to all the Katie books and whilst I like the detective I find her personal life both irritating and unbelievably over sexed! In the first few books she was a hard working detective married and then widowed and was very appealing. Now she’s like a sexed crazed detective that jumps into bed with practically every man she meets! She doesn’t even seem to care for the men she supposedly loves before jumping on the next man! It’s a shame because her character doesn’t need her to behave this way! She would be so much more appealing if she had some morals and stuck to doing her job as she did in the first books. Please let’s get back to the detective!
