A little slice of Heaven on the Emerald Isle… In the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, Naomi’s Bistro has always been a warm and welcoming spot to visit with neighbors, enjoy some brown bread and tea, and get the local gossip. Nowadays twenty-two-year-old Siobhán O’Sullivan runs the family bistro named for her mother, along with her five siblings, after the death of their parents in a car crash almost a year ago. It’s been a rough year for the O’Sullivans, but it’s about to get rougher. One morning, as they’re opening the bistro, they discover a man seated at a table, dressed in a suit as if for his own funeral, a pair of hot pink barber scissors protruding from his chest. With the local garda suspecting the O’Sullivans, and their business in danger of being shunned—murder tends to spoil the appetite—it’s up to feisty redheaded Siobhán to solve the crime and save her beloved brood. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CARLENE O’CONNOR AND MURDER IN AN IRISH VILLAGE “If Janet Evanovich and Maeve Binchy wrote a book together, Murder in an Irish Village would be the result. The Irish setting rings with authenticity and Siobhan O'Sullivan is a character to savor. She's funny, feisty, and fearless. I want her to be my new best friend. I also want another book by Carlene O’Connor to read. This one is delicious fun.”—Laurien Berenson, author of Live and Let Growl “A smart whodunnit in an idyllic locale. I dare you not to be charmed by sleuth Siobhan and her siblings, the O’Sullivan Six.”—Barbara Ross, author of Musseled Out “A delightful, funny, fast-paced romp of a book. O’Connor has written a vivid evocation of life in a small Irish town, an evocation replete with sharp characterizations and dialogue real enough to make you believe you’re sitting in an Irish pub. A satisfying read that will keep you entertained from the first to the last page.”—Isis Crawford, author of A Catered Tea Party

When American translator and sometime sleuth Torrey Tunet returns home to the Irish village of Ballynagh, she wants nothing more than to relax in front of a peat fire in her cottage. But when she finds an eight-year-old girl at the bus stop, waiting forlornly in the gathering darkness, Torrey reluctantly takes charge of delivering the child to the country house where her usually dependable aunt serves as housekeeper. What they find at Gwathney Hall, however, is not a warmly welcoming Auntie Megan: it's cold-blooded murder. Historian John Gwathney has been brutally shot in his own house, and the immediate suspect is none other than his housekeeper-the girl's aunt-Megan O'Faolain. Certain that her friend Megan is not a killer-and unable to resist a good mystery-Torrey vows to track down the murderer herself. As she digs deeper and deeper into Gwathney's research, looking for clues, she gets caught up in a whirlwind of theft, intrigue, and scandal. Is the guilty party Megan's not-so-secret lover, jealous of the romance Megan and Gwathney had shared? Was it Gwathney's assistant, who stood to gain a great deal upon his mentor's death? Was it Owen Thorpe, whose castle Gwathney visited for mysterious purposes shortly before he was killed? And how does the famous historian's final project-an unprecedented piece of scholarly detective work into the Sack of Baltimore by Algerian pirates-fit into the mysterious puzzle of his murder? As Torrey struggles to clear her friend's name and uncover the real killer, she must employ all her skills to find the key to this shocking crime-and prove that even in a small town such as Ballynagh, people can keep the most dangerous of secrets...

Duneen liegt wirklich am Arsch der Welt, ganz, ganz unten im Süden Irlands. Große Dramen finden in dem schmucken, kleinen Ort nicht statt, und trotzdem könnten viele Leute hier ein bisschen glücklicher sein. Sergeant PJ Collins war nicht immer so dick. Brid Riordan hat früher nicht so viel getrunken. Und auch Evelyn Ross glaubte einmal, ihr Leben könnte einen Sinn haben. Dann bricht der Tag an, als auf dem Grund der Burke-Farm Knochen gefunden werden. Menschliche Knochen. Und es ist vorbei mit der Ruhe, für PJ und einige andere in Duneen. Alte Wunden brechen auf, alte Lügen kommen ans Licht, neue Konflikte entbrennen, und während PJ zum ersten Mal in seiner Karriere einen richtigen Fall zu lösen versucht, überrascht er viele, die ihn zu kennen glaubten – am meisten sich selbst. «Ein großartiger Roman mit schön konstruierter Geschichte und der tröstlichen Botschaft, dass man Liebe finden kann, selbst wenn alle äußeren Umstände dagegen sprechen.» (Evening Standard)

The village of Kilbane in County Cork, Ireland, has a new garda—and her first case is a grave matter indeed . . . It's official! Siobhán is now Garda O’Sullivan, and her five siblings couldn’t be prouder. While brother James runs Naomi’s Bistro, Siobhán is doing her part to keep the village safe. Of course, Kilbane is pretty quiet compared to a place like Dublin, where Macdara Flannery has gone to be a detective sergeant. Then one night the local priest summons Siobhán to the church cemetery. There’s a dead man in the graveyard—aboveground. He lies shot on a blanket of freshly fallen snow, hand stretched out toward a nearby headstone. He’s a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town, searching for his Irish ancestor. A detective sergeant is dispatched from Dublin to assist with the case, and as fate would have it, it’s Macdara. After his parting, things are awkward between them, but they have to work together. They learn the victim was from Dublin—Dublin, Ohio, that is. And when his family members are located and told of his murder, the plot thickens. Siobhán begins to dig for a motive among the gnarled roots of the family tree. But as long-buried secrets are unearthed, she and Macdara will need to stay two steps ahead of the killer or end up with more than one foot in the grave.

"Wo drei Flüsse sich kreuzen" von Bestseller-Autorin Hannah Kent ist ein mitreißendes Drama um die Macht von Angst und Aberglaube - basierend auf einer wahren Geschichte aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Irland 1825: Die 14-jährige Mary soll der verwitweten Bäuerin Nora mit deren schwer behindertem Enkel Michael zur Hand gehen. Der kleine Junge, so munkelt man im Dorf, sei ein Wechselbalg, ein Feenkind, und mache die Kühe krank. Mary gibt nichts auf das Gerede, doch als Nora davon hört, reift in der einsamen, verzweifelten Frau eine ungeheuerliche Idee: Wenn es ihr gelingt, den Wechselbalg zu vertreiben, würde sie den gesunden Michael wiederbekommen und endlich wieder eine echte Familie haben. Getrieben von Angst und Aberglaube und unterstützt durch die geheimnisvolle Kräuterfrau Nance ist sie bald bereit, alles zu versuchen – und Mary fällt es immer schwerer, sich gegen die beiden Frauen durchzusetzen. Hannah Kent gelingt es durch ihre kristallklare Sprache erneut, eine grausame und wahre Geschichte eindringlich zu erzählen; die raue Schönheit Irlands verschmilzt mit dem Seelenleben ihrer Figuren, die dem Leser, wie schon in ihrem Debüt-Roman "Das Seelenhaus", ganz nahe kommen.

When competing card sharps stir up Siobhán O'Sullivan's quiet Irish village, a poker tournament turns into a game of Hangman . . . In the small village of Kilbane in County Cork, for a cuppa tea or a slice of brown bread, you go to Naomi's Bistro, managed by the many siblings of the lively O'Sullivan brood. For a pint or a game of darts--or for the poker tournament that's just come to town--it's the pub you want. One player's reputation precedes him: Eamon Foley, a tinker out of Dublin, called the Octopus for playing like he has eight hands under the table. But when Foley is found at the end of a rope, swinging from the rafters of Rory Mack's pub, it's time for the garda to take matters into their own hands. Macdara Flannery would lay odds it's a simple suicide--after all, there's a note and the room was locked. But Siobhán suspects foul play, as does Foley's very pregnant widow. Perhaps one of Foley's fellow finalists just raised the stakes to life and death. With conflicting theories on the crime--not to mention the possibility of a proposal--tensions are running high between Siobhán and Macdara. Soon it's up to Siobhán to call a killer's bluff, but if she doesn't play her cards right, she may be the next one taken out of the game . . .
