Multi-volume author Daithi Kavanagh introduces us to his newest book: The Crucifixion:
Detective Tadhg Sullivan’s break away from serious crime comes to an abrupt end when he is pushed into investigating the murder of a retired Christian Brother. A newly elected left wing government fear that the media will hold them personally responsible for what is believed to be a hate crime against the Catholic Church.
Ella Kavanagh, the new Minister for Justice, hopes that placing Sullivan in charge of the investigation will help to distance the government from any mud-slinging by the media. However, no one is prepared for the litany of abuse and corruption stretching back decades, which is about explode in all of their faces.
Can Sullivan save this fledgling government, or will the sins of the past remain buried, and so doing destroy the future of everyone concerned?
I have grown to really enjoy Daithi’s writing. For me, he delivers a perfect balance of action, dialog and narration. All of the characters seem very real, they have their own motivations and problems. His plotting moves the story along at a nice pace, I do not feel rushed in the story. I also love the way Tadhg, the main character, has developed and matured. Tadhg now seems like an old friend.
Daithi leaves a good amount to the imagination, something I enjoy a great deal.
The Irish flavor has been interesting for me also, it’s just a little different from British English.
For all the pure enjoyment of reading, The Crucifixion gets a score of 4.7 stars! The score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors I found.
