A killer is stalking the dark streets of Dublin. Before each attack, he makes the sign of the cross; then he sends his victims to God. After a foreign politician's daughter is brutally assaulted and left for dead, her body branded with burns from a blazing cross, the case falls to Detective Inspector Mike Mulcahy. Mulcahy is one tough cop, but this crime is beyond comprehension - and the Priest is a nemesis more evil and elusive than any Mulcahy has ever faced. As media frenzy erupts and the city reels in terror, Mulcahy teams up with ambitious journalist Siobhan Fallon in a desperate bid to stop the Priest in his tracks before he can complete his divine mission of murder.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 2/18/2014

    " Very well written mystery. I like that the detective (Mulcahy) has experience and his feet in two countries, Ireland and Spain. The fact that he can speak Spanish and knows their culture helps him with his investigations of murder in Dublin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 2/16/2014

    " A killer with religious overtones is dubbed the Priest by a tabloid writer, Sioban Fallon. Mike Mulcahy, a detective back home in Dublin from an assignment in Spain is brought into the hunt for killer. He becomes involved with writer and tries to keep his investigation from her. The story is taut and exciting with good characterizations of the people involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conor O'reilly | 1/30/2014

    " Well done crime book. I enjoyed it. Shows more depth of character, and compassion towards its characters, than most. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie Riley | 1/22/2014

    " I'm into a Irish fiction reading jag. That happens when you visit the country and buy their fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 1/12/2014

    " Well written but really predictable plot & the characters were annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hanscom | 12/31/2013

    " This was a very exciting book. I would have rated it higher, but there were two or three subplots which were either left hanging for a later book without explanation or just ignored. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David La Mora | 12/9/2013

    " The story is slow moving and drawn out. Not much detail on the present crimes or into the serial-killer's mind. Not sure I can even call him a serial-killer like the jacket, with only one murder. Would of liked to seen more focus on the killer. Disappointed that the killers identity was predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Vanhouten | 11/29/2013

    " I didn't really get to know the main character as he was just out of reach - I don't know if this was the author's intent, or just how he writes. I am not sure that I will look for another book by this author if he makes it into a series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace P. | 11/1/2013

    " Good thriller. Makes me wish I was still leading a mystery book club. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deborah | 10/13/2013

    " Loved the premise of this book. The plot could have been brilliant if backed up by sound writing and characters that the reader could learn to know. It's flat, bland and ultimately a terrible read. When will Irish journalists learn that they can't all be John Connolly? Very disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shiela | 8/27/2013

    " It took me over two weeks to finish this 300 page novel...enough said. I don't know where all of the glowing praises are coming from and I can't even quite pinpoint why I plodded along at such an excruciatingly slow pace but I just couldn't get into this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Gorski | 8/6/2013

    " Really 3.5 stars...quite good but not great...fascinating for anyone familiar with Ireland (Dublin in particular). For a first novel this was a well written and conceived mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Russeller | 7/19/2013

    " Decent thriller. Good full-turn plot. Still not quite understanding the hurried ending, nor the music angle... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Repasy | 12/1/2012

    " Good mystery. Would have preferred not to pay for it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Coki | 10/27/2012

    " Eh. Decent procedural but not awesome. I found the journalist character grating. Not nearly as compelling and atmospheric as Tana French. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iris | 10/5/2012

    " Really liked this thriller. Am in anticiption of his next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Woodlandbear | 9/17/2012

    " Well paced throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bernadette | 7/21/2012

    " I haven't read such a good mystery in a long time...looking forward to more by Gerard O'Donovan. I had a really hard time putting this down which, for me, is not typical of most modern mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 11/6/2011

    " it was ok - I would be interested in reading another in the series before giving up..hated the woman reporter character - she was like cardboar..overall nothing new in this procedural. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 4/13/2011

    " This book isn't what I thought was...at all. It is dragging really bad, but given the storyline, I keep hoping it picks up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 victor | 3/18/2011

    " I don't usually read much modern fiction, but this has a good mix of suspense, complexity and dialogue.
    I enjoyed most of it, but I do think it got off the tracks a little bit in the last 30 pages or so. Still, it was engaging enough to merit a solid rating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 3/9/2011

    " New Irish crime thriller--religious serial-killer is stalking young girls of Dublin. Fast-paced modern day good read. "
