Borderlands by Brian McGilloway
Book DescriptionThe corpse of local teenager Angela Cashell is found on the Tyrone- Donegal border, between the North and South of Ireland, in an area known as the borderlands. Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin heads the investigation: the only clues are a gold ring placed on the girl's finger and an old photograph, left where she died. Then another teenager is murdered, and things become further complicated when Devlin unearths a link between the recent killings and the disappearance of a prostitute twenty-five years earlier -- a case in which he believes one of his own colleagues is implicated. As a thickening snow storm blurs the border between North and South, Devlin finds the distinction between right and wrong, vengeance and justice, and even police-officer and criminal becoming equally unclear. A dazzling and lyrical debut crime novel, Borderlands marks the beginning of a compelling new series featuring Inspector Benedict Devlin. 'Brian McGilloway's command of plot and assurance of language make it difficult to believe that Borderlands is his debut.' - The Times 'A mystery of labyrinthine complexity' - Sunday Telegraph

US Kirkus Review » Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Lifford, where murder makes the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland sizzle beneath the snow.Inspector Benedict Devlin is placed in charge of investigating the matter of Angela Cashell, who's been suffocated and dumped in a field on the first day of winter. Angela's father Johnny, a chronic petty criminal, alternately baits and stonewalls Devlin. But his gibes are nothing compared to the torments Devlin endures when senile old Thomas Powell Sr. complains that someone's been messing about in his room at Finnside Nursing Home and Devlin has to deal with Miriam Powell, the flirtatious ex-girlfriend who married Thomas Powell Jr. The murder of an accounting student from Dublin, shot in the head before his car was torched, strikes fear into the locals but does nothing to clarify the situation. Rousing himself from a mixture of lust, guilt and rage, Devlin becomes convinced that the key to the mystery is a moonstone ring that was practically the only article of clothing Angela Cashell was wearing when she was found. The ring's checkered history links both murders to the disappearance 25 years ago of a prostitute whose friends in high places are in serious danger from her self-appointed avengers.McGilloway's debut is marked by tangled, derivative plotting, exceptionally mature prose and a hero as charismatically volcanic in his own way as Louisiana's Dave Robicheaux.
