Staff Reviews


Set in 1950s Dublin, Christine Falls is the first of a series featuring the hard drinking, rather depressive pathologist, Quirke.  Curious about the details of a suspicious death, he obsessively traces the victim’s circumstances that turn out to involve his own family.

So besides a compelling whodunnit, we discover Quirke’s backstory along with family complications, reaching across the pond to Catholic Boston where some of the action takes place.  By Booker Prize winner John Banville under his pseudonym, the writing is exceptional for the mystery genre.
