The Nameless Dead: An Inspector Devlin Thriller (Inspector Devlin Thrillers)

 
9780062417336: The Nameless Dead: An Inspector Devlin Thriller (Inspector Devlin Thrillers)

The small isle of Islandmore was once an avenue for smugglers and a burial place for unbaptized babies.

When a cold case leads Inspector Devlin to the desolate island in an attempt to locate the bodies of a group of people who have been presumed dead for over thirty years, he uncovers a horrifying secret: the body of a baby who appears to have been murdered. Every fiber of the inspector's being tells him he should find justice for this child, but he is prohibited from investigating further.

Devlin is torn. He has no desire to dredge up painful events of the past, but neither can he let a murderer go unpunished. Devlin must follow his conscience—even when it puts those closest to him at risk.

About the Author:

Brian McGilloway is the New York Times bestselling author of the critically acclaimed Inspector Benedict Devlin and DS Lucy Black series. He lives near the Irish borderlands with his wife, daughter, and three sons.

From Booklist:

The novel’s first words let readers know they’re not in for a romp: “The cadaver dog . . . .” Sadness hangs over the book, and not just because everybody’s Irish. The dog is seeking the remains of suspected traitors to the IRA, gunned down and tossed underground in obscure places; but something more heartbreaking is unearthed: an infant’s corpse. Deformed. Murdered. Enter Inspector Devlin of the Irish police, who’s only partly a noir hero. His wife doesn’t betray him, his children adore him, and he doesn’t drink too much, but he does have his own sod-the-law code, and when his superior forbids him to seek justice for the child, he’s off. No razzle-dazzle. He wears out shoe leather tracking down names that lead to other names. He exposes a real-estate scam, a black-market baby mill, and secret experiments that killed children. The writing is subdued, maybe too much—the action scenes feel distant. The profusion of names makes start-and-stop reading a challenge. But the revelations are worth it, especially the fact-based ones: those drugmakers did kill babies. --Don Crinklaw
