The Irish Suspect : A Dan Delaney Mystery
About the book . . . Dan Delaney is a first class detective in Dublin who was blamed for a poorly prosecuted case of a child murder. By caving to the department brass, he suffered severe criticism and retribution from his superiors, some of whom secretly covered for the real perpetrator. For ten years, he has been passed over for promotions and works on petty crimes at a branch station with his partner Joe Murphy. Then suddenly Dan is given a new murder to solve. Dan knows the only reason they passed it on to him was because someone outside the police headquarters, and high up in the government was interested in the outcome and none of the brass were up to solving a nearly impossible case. As evidence piles up around the Irish Suspect, Dan Delaney is convinced that once again, the wrong man has been charged, only this time he is determined to find the real culprit. In the end, unraveling twenty years of confusing relationships, neighborhood tension, and gossip turns into a three year endeavor.
