The body falls



Stock Availability:

Format:  Paperback

April in Florida and Ben O'Keeffe is enjoying crazy temperatures, working the last few days of a six-month stint with her old law firm. A week later she returns to Glendara, Inishowen where a charity cycle race has been postponed due to heavy rain. So the cyclists stay overnight in the town. But the rain doesn't stop; it increases to become relentless, torrential. In the middle of the night Sergeant Tom Molloy is called out to Mamore Gap, where a body, dislodged from a high bank by the heavy rain, has fallen onto the vet's jeep. It is identified as Bob Jameson, a well known local charities boss, and the organiser of the cycling event. Stunned, the local GP confirms that the cause of death was a snakebite. Terrible weather persists and soon bridges are down and roads are impassable. Glendara is completely cut off, with a killer at the heart of the community.

What the critics say

Her best yet... Andrea conjures up a phenomenal sense of place. She is such an assured, stylish writer and The Body Falls is remarkably gripping As wonderful as I expected. Tense, atmospheric, claustrophobic, it grips the reader ever tighter as its mystery deepens Praise for the Inishowen mysteries: Atmospheric and vivid Irish Times I adored this traditional crime novel; it's modern day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple Irish Examiner The colourful cast of characters may be fictional, but the landscapes, towns and villages are instantly recognisable Irish Daily Mail A beguiling heroine - clever, sympathetic and bearing a weight of guilt The Times
