Author’s Summary


He comes and goes as he pleases: even when the police know the target, the date and the time of his next murder, he still kills his victim and escapes without being apprehended. Who can stop a killer like this?

Three people are murdered on separate Tuesday evenings at precisely 11:05. Random clues point to random suspects, but too many questions remain unanswered. Why 11:05 pm for each killing? Is there any connection between these deaths and a rape that occurred at Queen’s university twelve years before? What is the connection between the killings and Sergeant Stewart’s mystery informant? Who is the violent stalker who twice nearly kills Detective Allen? What is his connection, if any, to the murders? When one of his team is kidnapped, Inspector Sheehan has literally only minutes to make sense of these questions if he is to save his colleague’s life.

The first thing I thought after reading this book is: why isn’t Brian O’Hare better known in the crime writing world? This man is extremely talented, and his book a wonderful ‘whodunnit’ that left me guessing until the end. [Joseph Sousa, Crime-writer]

Head and shoulders above most mystery authors who are published today, Brian O’Hare deserves far wider recognition. You won’t regret purchasing his books.[CBT, Amazon Reviewer]

Brian O’Hare is an intelligent and compassionate storyteller who takes his chosen genre a decent literary distance beyond your average ‘whodunnit’.[Robin Chambers, author]

An explosive mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end, riddled with unseen surprises and breathless suspense! [Wesley Thomas, writer and blogger]





Short Description

This is more than a simple ‘whodunit’. This goes beyond any Mystery book ever written. It delves deep into the characters, and the plot. And perhaps the past comes into play? One thing is for sure, you are guaranteed plenty of twists and surprises, that you won’t see coming!


A Mystery that will keep you guessing.

Part of a stunning series

UK readers familiar with Inspector Morse will appreciate the unique character of Detective Chief Inspector Jim Sheehan. Set in post-Troubles Northern Ireland, the books play out against a neatly-drawn backdrop that adds dimension to a thrilling story. This is the second in a series currently numbering three books, with several Short episodes separately published in the lexicon, and deserves to be up there with the greats. Check out Amazon for scores of reviews, you will not be disappointed.

Like the first in the series, The Doom Murders, this book won a New Apple Award for Excellence, and the latest in the stable, The Coven Murders, is receiving rave reviews.
