Christine Falls
Serier: Quirke (1)
For this engrossing mystery novel set in Dublin and Boston in the 1950s, Booker Prize-winner John Banville writes as Benjamin Black. Christine Falls, a 2008 Edgar Award Nominee, is a classic tale of suspense and the first book in the Quirke series. The hero Quirke is a surly pathologist who returns to the morgue after a few drinks to find his brother-in-law tampering with the records on a young woman's corpse. The next morning, when his hangover has worn off, Quirke reluctantly begins looking into the woman's history. He discovers a plot that spans two continents, implicates the Catholic Church, and may just involve members of his own family. He is warned to lay off, but Quirke is a stubborn man and his instincts are irresistible. Despite his drinking, foul temper and distaste for most living souls, he is committed to discovering the truth behind some well-guarded secrets. Christine Falls uses all the vividness and psychological insight of Banville's fiction to create the dark, menacing atmosphere of a first-class thriller.
