Set in the remote, quiet Irish village of Duneen, sergeant PJ Collins, who is living a rather uneventful life, finds himself in the middle of his first genuine case, one that threatens to unravel the village's darkest secrets.

I'm always a bit weary whenever someone famous decides to write a book, so I was a little bit surprised to find that I really, really enjoyed this novel.

I think the mystery in this is good, not great, but what makes this book so enjoyable are the characters and the setting. I really found myself wonderfully amused and intrigued by the main characters and I especially loved the sergeant. I also loved the way Norton captured that small town feel and that whole everyone knows everyone and everyone's business vibe.

Although there are parts of this book that are quite sad and heart wrenching, there's also quite a bit of delightful humor in this and I couldn't help but chuckle at some parts. It's just a tremendously enjoyable book, the kind of cozy mystery that you can't help but be entertained by. I know Norton is coming out with a new book this year which is another mystery and I'm definitely going to be reading that.
